The Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has told Liverpool Football News that he is not worried about the poor start that they have made to the season. The 32-year-old midfielder has seen Liverpool not be at their in the opening three matches of the season. Apart from the 2-2 draw with Manchester city when they came extremely close to getting all three points, Liverpool had been extremely poor on various fronts this season.
The season started with a 3-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom, while they were recently defeated by Arsenal 2-0. As a result, they are still searching for the first win under the new manager Brendan Rodgers.
Even more worrying for Liverpool is the fact that they have let the striker Andy Carroll leave for West Ham on a season long loan deal. This leaves Brendan Rodgers with only two selections when it comes to strikers – Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini. This is unlikely to bode well with the rigours of a difficult Premier league season coupled with the Europa league adventures. Still, the captain and midfielder Steven Gerrard has expressed his confidence that the results will improve over the next few weeks. Liverpool will be facing Sunderland and Manchester United in the next two matches.
“When you’re not winning football matches it’s tough. But when you have my kind of experience, you don’t panic after three games. We were fantastic against Manchester City and should have won. Against Arsenal it was the opposite. It’s been a tough few weeks but it’s not the time to panic. We can still take the club forward,” said the Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard in a recent interview. Steven Gerrard was recently sent off in the World Cup qualifying match against Ukraine. He was given a second yellow card in the second half of the match.
