"The strain of Ipswich's midweek journey can be weighed against Liverpool's loss of their remarkably resillient forward, Dalglish, who has succumbed to a troublesome ankle injury. Obviously this is a serious problem for the Liverpool manager, Bob Paisley, who has been fearing just such a breakdown. Dalglish has a fine record of survival against all of the tough tackling that comes his way and perhaps it will be helpful for Liverpool to see how his first absence in three years affects overall performance. Rush, bought from Chester for 300,000 pounds last season, plays his first game. Mr Paisley said: "It was not an easy decision, but what swayed me in the end was that if I had picked anyone else it would have meant playing them out of position. I have replaced a striker with a striker." (The Times).
