Skrtel: Liverpool's Premier League form needs addressing

Martin Skrtel insists Liverpool's Premier League performance has to take priority over decent performances in both cup competitions. The Reds' eighth-place finish has partly contributed to the uncertainty concerning the future of boss Kenny Dalglish.

"We won the Carling Cup and got to the final of the FA Cup, so from that point of view it was a good season in the cups," said the Slovakia international.

"But I think the most important thing is the league and we didn't get enough in it." He added on liverpoolfc.tv: "Everybody knows it wasn't a great season because we finished in eighth position and that's not good.

"I think we deserved to finish higher than eighth position, but there were too many games in which we didn't get three points - and there were too many games in which we didn't get what we deserved."
