Downing prepared to knuckle down at left-back for Liverpool

Liverpool winger Stewart Downing is prepared to play at left-back for manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers sees left-back as Downing's long-term position.

Downing said: "First and foremost, I'm an attacking player but if the manager needs me to help out at the back then I'm willing to do so.

"(Playing left-back) has been demanding. I was up and down the wing and it involved a lot of running but I thoroughly enjoyed it. As long as you are involved in the game and get plenty of the ball, you tend to enjoy it more. If you get a result too that helps."
