Liverpool require a lot of work to finish in top four, says John Aldridge
John Aldridge says Liverpool need a lot of work to finish in the top four this season.
The Reds are languishing in 11th place after a 2-1 defeat by leaders Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday.
And former Liverpool striker Aldridge admits Brendan Rodgers’s side are looking like a mid-table outfit at the moment.
“At the moment we’re struggling badly. It goes without saying, we’re playing like a mid-table team so there’s a lot of work to be done,” Aldridge told Sky Sports News.
“We need, it’s imperative, on the back of getting into the Champions League this year we attain it again and keep on rebuilding because the best players always want to play in the Champions League.
“Short-term, it’s to get Daniel Sturridge back, gain some belief in the team. Confidence is so low defensively, (and) in attack we’re not scoring goals. We’ve three forwards who haven’t scored a league goal between them (Mario) Balotelli, (Fabio) Borini and (Rickie) Lambert. Goals win you games and get you points.”
