Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen insists defeat at Manchester City hasn't knocked their confidence.

The Reds go to Chelsea this weekend.

"It was great to be involved in a game like that, but obviously bitterly disappointing to come away with nothing," the midfielder told Liverpoolfc.com.

"The performance deserved a bit more than that, but we'll have to move on and make sure we pick up a result now at Stamford Bridge.

"[The manager said] if we play like that, nine times out of 10 we'll get a win and a result.

"We have to keep our heads up; there were lots of positives to take from today. We all know the strength of Manchester City at home. They certainly know they have been in a game today."
