Derby County boss Paul Jewell admits they're in line for a rout against Liverpool unless they improve their defending today.

Jewell knows that with red-hot strikers such as Fernando Torres in their line-up, Liverpool can be ruthless.

He said: "I don't think I need to remind the lads of what happened at Anfield - 6-0 is a hiding but that can happen in this league if the top teams have a day when everything clicks.

"I remember Ipswich losing 9-0 to Manchester United so it really is scary at times.

"If we defend like we did at Newcastle, we will concede more goals. There has been a lot improvement - but we need to improve even more."
