Liverpool skipper Gerrard says three points a must against Norwich

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is demanding three points against Norwich City.

The Reds are winless from their first five Premier League games — although that run included matches against champions Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.

Gerrard said: “We have a run of games coming up now where there are points we should be taking but the longer it (not winning) goes on the more difficult it is going to get so it is important against Norwich we take maximum points.

“If you look at the performances against City and United we should have six (more) points so it is not a case of ‘they’re out the way now, let’s go beat the sides we should beat’.

“I think what we need to do is keep playing like we have done and hopefully we’ll get the rub of the green, get referee’s decisions in our favour and we will go on and take maximum points.

“Of course it puts more pressure on us. If we had won against United and beaten City everyone would be saying about how good a result it was at Sunderland (a 1-1 draw).

“But because that win hasn’t come it seems as if we dropped points at Sunderland, so it is no good getting a point from these tough away games any more, we need to win them.”
