Raheem Sterling: Liverpool need to get back to basics and winning ways
Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling is urging the Reds to get back to winning ways as soon as possible
Raheem Sterling has refused to make excuses for Liverpool after a loss to West Ham United.
The Reds star scored what proved to be a first-half consolation for the visitors as the Hammers eased to a 3-1 victory at Upton Park.
We need to get back to basics and start winning games again
Liverpool have already lost three Premier League games this season ahead of their clash against Middlesbrough in the League Cup.
And Sterling admits the Reds need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
“We can’t use playing in the Champions League as an excuse because there are other teams in the Premier League doing exactly the same as us who are winning games,” Sterling told Liverpool’s website.
“The games are coming thick and fast but that’s what we want – to be competing at the top end of the Premier League and in the Champions League.
“What it means now is that after the second recovery day after a game we’re straight back into another game. That’s the way it’s going to be this season and that’s something we need to get used to.
“We’ve got the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Joe Allen to come back from injury but we should be winning games with the players we’ve got out on that pitch.
“We need to get back to basics and start winning games again.”
