Mike Marsh says Liverpool have secured some breathing space ahead of their trip to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

The Reds were 2-1 winners against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield before the Liverpool squad broke up for the international break.

We know it’s a tough fixture list with the amount of games and the quality of the opposition

Liverpool are trailing their rivals in ninth place after managing to secure a disappointing three victories from their opening seven top-flight games.

And Brendan Rodgers’s assistant coach Marsh is confident that Liverpool can cope with a demanding schedule over the next couple of weeks.

“It was a big boost and it was important,” Marsh told Liverpool’s website.

“It was important we won that game because there’s a long time between West Brom and QPR. It was nice to get the three points because it gives you a bit of breathing space to go into the next one.

“We know it’s a tough fixture list with the amount of games and the quality of the opposition so we know it’s going to be tough, but the more players we have available the better.

“Our fitness programmes have been well documented. We try to recover the players as best we can to prepare for the game. We have a couple of days’ recovery after the game and we work with the group of players for the next game.

“We do quite a lot of analysis with the players so we break them up into smaller groups and feed back in different ways.”
