Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard: We need maximum points at Norwich City
Liverpool's Steven Gerrard believes the Reds need to beat Norwich City to build confidence ahead of a winnable set of fixtures
Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool need to beat Norwich City on Saturday to breathe life into their stalled Premier League campaign.
Brendan Rodgers is yet to taste three points in the English top flight as Reds manager after replacing Kenny Dalglish at the Anfield helm in May.
Liverpool can count themselves unlucky to come away from dominant displays against Manchester City and Sunderland with just a point, while Manchester United were fortuitous winners on Merseyside last weekend.
However, the Reds captain admitted it is now imperative the 18-time English champions capitalise on an easier run of fixtures after registering just two points this term, starting with a win at Norwich City.
“We have a run of games coming up now where there are points we should be taking,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website.
“But the longer it [not winning] goes on the more difficult it is going to get, so it is important against Norwich we take maximum points.
“If you look at the performances against City and United we should have six points so it is not a case of: ‘They’re out the way now, let’s go beat the sides we should beat.’
“I think what we need to do is keep playing like we have done and hopefully we’ll get the rub of the green, get referees’ decisions in our favour and we will go on and take maximum points.”
