Gerrard calls for patience as Liverpool attempt to arrest slide

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has asked supporters to be patient as the Reds try to find a way to improve their poor form, the Daily Mail has reported. Kenny Dalglish’s side have lost six of their last seven Premier League games.

The Mail notes that Liverpool have won only twice in the league in 2012 and, despite winning the Carling Cup, the first trophy to arrive at Anfield in six years, there is discontent amongst a section of supporters. An FA Cup semi-final appearance is likewise not enough to sate some disgruntled fans.

But Gerrard has promised the Liverpool faithful that the team will come good under Kenny Dalglish. The England international is quoted as saying: “I’d ask the supporters to be patient. We’ll get it right. We’re in a league position we’re not happy with and…we need to try to move up the league as soon as possible.

Liverpool have fallen to eighth in the table during their poor run, below Merseyside rivals Everton, who are also the opposition in the forthcoming FA Cup semi-final. Everton are also the only team Liverpool have beaten in their last seven league matches.
