Dirk Kuyt scored his first Liverpool hat-trick to beat Manchester United 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
"It's perfect," said the Dutchman. "You always dream about a hat-trick and to make a hat-trick against United is the best feeling ever. Edwin (Van deer Sar) told me after the game you don't score many goals against me and today a hat-trick so I'm more than happy with that.
"I have to thank Luis swell because he played great today and created two of the goals I scored so perfect performance by him.
"They were quite easy goals. I used to score these kind of goals back in Holland when I was playing more like a striker but those goals count swell so I'm more than happy to take them.
"I believe that we can compete against the best. We showed it against Chelsea and today we showed it against United. But we also now have to compete against the other sides, last week against West Ham was very disappointing and hopefully we can make a nice run from today."
