Hyypia told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It is very important we get back to winning ways in the league after a couple of draws. We haven't been beaten in the league yet but if you have too many draws it's not so good.

"It's important not to lose too much ground on Arsenal, and Manchester United have been playing well recently too."

The big Finn, who is about to turn 34, also confessed his disappointed that he'll not go head to head with Emile Heskey at the JJB.

The England striker is recovering from a broken metatarsal.

Hyypia said: "It's unfortunate that we can't play against Emile but I'm sure Marcus Bent and Antoine Sibierski will give us a hard game."
