The Reds will continue to give their all until the final whistle goes on the last day of the season. That’s the view of Brendan Rodgers, who has insisted that his side will keep fighting as they look to finish the season strongly.
His Liverpool side will today be attempting to end a run of just two wins in seven games in all competitions, a streak which has included four defeats and just six goals in our favour.
We face a Queens Park Rangers side that are scrapping for their Premier League future at the foot of the table and Rodgers has admitted that it’s likely to be a difficult game.
Speaking to our official website, he said: “It’ll be a very, very tough game for us. Chris has gone in there and they’re very well organised, they’re all working hard, you see in a lot of their recent games they press the ball very high up the field, very much as a unit.
“I must stress that the players, like in the game the other night, are giving absolutely everything. It’s not a team that’s lacking commitment and attitude.
“You saw from the game the other night they’re giving everything in the game, we probably just lacked that bit of belief and confidence in and around vital areas of the field, which in the past the team has shown itself to be very strong in.
“But that’s something that’s natural. But make no mistake about it – the players will give everything right to the very end. Our season doesn’t finish until the final whistle at Stoke.
“I’ve always said that and I reiterate that. This is a team that will fight right to the very end and now the next game is very, very important for us.”
Jordon Ibe agrees, underlining the importance of us winning our remaining four fixtures to reinvigorate everyone’s confidence heading into the summer break.
Again, in quotes take by our official website, the youngster revealed what Rodgers had to say following Tuesday’s defeat to Hull. He said: “[He told us] just to continue the way we’re playing, to remember the identity of how we play and, most importantly, to try to get goals.
“The last few games we haven’t got a goal so it’s about getting shots off and the attacking players getting into the box when crosses are coming in.
“[He talked about how] we need to keep playing as a team and why playing against teams like Hull, teams lower in the league, can be difficult on a Tuesday night.
“Sometimes it’s not about playing the best football, it’s just trying to grind it out and get the three points. We weren’t good enough at that [on Tuesday] and obviously the whole team was disappointed, including me, so hopefully we can change that.”
