Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says his team is still to bed down.

Reds fans have been frustrated over their inconsistency this season.

Dalglish told "I think what we have to remember also is seven new players it's their first season and you would include Andy (Carroll) in that as well.

"He came in last season with an injury and never featured until the Manchester United game (in March), when he came on as a sub. So his career really only started in August there.

"We have got to get to know them and they have got to get to know us and I think it is a fantastic credit to all of them - the new ones and the ones that were here before -that they have gelled so quickly.

"That includes everybody who has come in. It will take a bit of time for everyone to be acquainted with each other but we are happy with the progress we have made so far."
