Steven Gerrard has claimed some of the negativity surrounding Liverpool’s start to the season has been way overblown.
We endured a miserable September in terms of luck and results, winning just one in six – including being on the wrong end of a 5-0 hammering by Manchester City.
But in reality, we’re one point off the top four and are still favourites to qualify from our Champions League Group.
“We’re seven games into a Premier League campaign – there’s no time to panic,” Gerrard told liverpoolfc.com.
“We’ve got a wonderful manager and coaching staff that are looking after these players.
“I think everything is fine. I’m not one that jumps on the bandwagon and listens to criticism after seven games.”
What’s more, it could have been very different if we got the rub of the green on a few more occasions.
We had legitimate penalty shouts against Burnley and Newcastle which could have seen us convert both draws into wins, and should have beaten both Sevilla and Maribor out of sight based on chances created.
At EOTK, we’re of the opinion that Liverpool will hit form after the international break. A short break will do the team and manager, who’s feeling the pressure at the moment, some good.
A win against Manchester United on October 14 will change the whole feeling about the club.
