Hard work the key to having Liverpool back at the top - Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits it takes a lot of hard work and effort for a team to stay at the top.

The Reds have had a hard run of it lately with just one win in their past eight Premier League matches, making it their worst run of results since 1953, with some supporters beginning to lose patience.

Dalglish knows it will be extremely tough for the Anfield outfit to get back to their old winning ways but at least he says that everybody involved is willing to give their all for the good of the club.

"It is always difficult to get back to where they were because they were so high up," said Dalglish.

"But it (the method for success) has not changed too much really - it takes a lot of hard work and a lot of effort.

"We have good players who can get there but you need confidence and belief in yourself and you need a bit of luck.

"We can work as hard as we possibly can and if we do our side of it then at least we can look at ourselves and say we had a right go at it.

"At every football club it is [about] hard work but I can't believe how hard work is a bonus for people.

"I think that was taken as given that you work hard; so for us we'll work hard because you get nothing if you don't.

"These lads are genuine and honest and they have worked really hard to get any success they have had.

"We just have to keep on going and believing and try to keep our confidence up that the hard work will be rewarded eventually."
