Benitez demands Liverpool use Besiktas result as inspiration

Rafael Benitez has told his Liverpool players to use the memory of Tuesday's 8-0 win over Besiktas to start dominating on their own turf.

Fulham visit Anfield on Saturday and the Liverpool manager cannot afford a fifth drawn home Premier League game of the season.

"If we want to get as close as possible to the top of the table we have to win more often at Anfield," he said. "We should have beaten Chelsea and could have beaten Arsenal. Against Spurs we were in the lead and missed good chances and then against Birmingham we controlled the game for 80 minutes. The difference on each occasion has just been one goal and it could be the difference between where we are now and being second in the table."
