The Liverpool FC captain Steven Gerrard is asking the fans to give the club some time to sort out their current problems.

Gerrard asks Liverpool supporters to be patient

Liverpool is stuck in their worst League form in over 50 years having lost six Premier League matches.

This slide has now seen manager Kenny Dalglish’s side fall behind city rivals Everton in eighth place.

Although Gerrard thinks that their current position is unacceptable given time the club will come good.

“There are a lot of challenges ahead this season. I’d ask the supporters to be patient; we will get it right,” Gerrard told the club’s official website.

“We have had a mixed March. We’re in a league position we’re not happy about and we need to look at ourselves and try to move up the league as soon as possible.”

Gerrard was named Liverpool player of the month, and while grateful he knows that individual awards are not enough.

“It’s always nice to be rewarded for personal achievements, but from day one I have always said it’s about the team,” added Gerrard.

“It’s nice as a player to know you’re doing your job properly. Now I need to help the team to improve and become more consistent.

“The Everton game was obviously a highlight for me in March. It was a great team performance but besides that there weren’t many highlights.

“Let’s hope April has many more and that we can climb up the table and get to the FA Cup final.

“Although we have been inconsistent in the league we have shown we are a stronger squad and can beat anyone.”
