Luis Suárez believes Liverpool have been “unlucky” after Brendan Rodgers’ side endured a win-less start to their Premier League campaign.

The Reds suffered a 2-1 defeat by Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, condemning the Merseyside outfit to their third loss in five games.

Liverpool have collected just two points despite dominant performances against Manchester City, Sunderland and United – but Suárez is confident the Reds will soon register their first league victory of the campaign.

“It makes it more difficult when your opening fixtures of the season are against strong teams like Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United – they are not easy games,” Suarez told Liverpool’s website ahead of the Reds’ trip to Norwich on Saturday.

“We also have new manager and I think we’ve been a bit unlucky at times, but we’ve been playing the kind of football he wants us to play.

“What everyone clearly wants from now on is to pick up as many points as we can. Everyone is keen to turn the situation around and put an end to what’s happened in the last few games.”

“I believe in my teammates and the quality of the individual players and the squad as a whole, that’s the most important thing.

“If everyone is together and we believe in each other, that’s the best way to keep moving forward. At the moment, we are not in the position where Liverpool Football Club has to be, which is battling it out at the top end of the league.

“But we’ve been a bit unlucky, and I still believe – and will continue to believe – that we have a lot of quality here and a manager who is giving everyone the confidence to believe in their opportunities. The results will definitely come.”
