New Liverpool signing Luis Suarez impressed on his first start for the club but manager Kenny Dalglish was not surprised by the Uruguay international's performance.
The 24-year-old, a £22.8million arrival from Ajax last month, had already scored on his debut as a substitute against Stoke. On his second appearance for the Reds he hit the post and the crossbar in a busy performance which caused Wigan's defence numerous problems in the 1-1 draw at Anfield.
"It was maybe unfair to keep Luis on for 90 minutes because he's not had too many games but we kept hoping he would get a goal," said Dalglish.
"His energy and enthusiasm and movement is going to cause a lot of people a lot of problems.
"He never did anything which surprised us because he didn't do anything we've not seen before.
"He is a good footballer playing with good footballers so I am not going to be surprised by anything that he does.
"He will be a favourite with supporters I think."
Suarez also received the support of fellow South American Lucas Leiva.
"He is a dangerous striker, you could see that against Wigan and he worked really hard to help the team," said the Brazil international.
"You could see his quality with the free-kick (which hit the crossbar) and I am sure he will score a lot of goals."
