Liverpool and Spain international Pepe Reina has come under the spotlight personally this term, with his keeping standards having slipped from previous seasons.

Reina admits there have been problems, but defended his displays and insists the club need to be given time under boss Brendan Rodgers.

He added: "It's been a strange season for me because I've missed lots of games with injury.

"Some people say I've had a bad season, but honestly I think I only had three poor matches, at the beginning of the year.

"This has been the most unsettled season, both personally and as a team, since I joined the club.

"Liverpool is going through a transitional period, with new ideas and a different playing philosophy. That takes time. People have to be patient. It's normal for us to be erratic."
