Adam Lallana has told Liverpool to have more belief in themselves after outlining what he feels is the major difference between the sides this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s out-of-sorts side find themselves fifth in the Premier League table after 23 games, with Liverpool having shown title-winning potential in the first half of the season.
But one win in 10 games since the start of 2017 – and no wins in the league – has left them 13 points behind leaders Chelsea, and one behind the Champions League qualification places.
Lallana believes that the only difference between Chelsea and the struggling Reds is that the former have the necessary experience.
“You can see they have a lot of experience and that they are used to winning,” he said.
“They know how to win games even when not at their best. You don’t have to always win by scoring five or six.
“Maybe that’s an area we need to improve on. We maybe need to realise how good we are at times.
“Milly (James Milner) is probably the only one in our group who has that type of experience because it only comes from winning silverware like he did at Manchester City.
“Myself and the other players haven’t won titles or loads of cups so we need to learn from him and listen to him because that type of experience is vital.
“We need to learn and get back to winning ways in the league as soon as possible.”
