Liverpool skipper Gerrard: I'm sure Rafa still working market

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is confident manager Rafa Benitez is still working the summer transfer market.

He told the News of the World: "What's encouraging is now there seems to be a unity at the club from top to bottom which can only help.

"There have been stages where we've been in the papers for what's gone on upstairs, but hopefully that's all over with.

"Bringing Kenny Dalglish back to the club as an ambassador was also a fantastic move which I know gave the players a big lift.

"I honestly don't see a lot more changes being needed to the side, but we do have to find consistency from the first game. That showed last year when it was draws, not defeats which cost us.

"We are good enough to win it.

"Our keeper is the best in the world, defensively we're very solid and we've got matchwinners such as Fernando (Torres).

"There's no two ways about it, Xabi Alonso going to Real Madrid will leave a hole. But there's an opportunity for Lucas to show what he can and hopefully for Alberto Aquilani to show how good he is. If we give Alberto time maybe he'll make sure we don't miss Xabi too much and I'm sure Rafa will be working as I speak to bring a few more in."
