Benayoun happy to be back in action at Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun is happy to be back in action.

Benayoun is keen to make up for the time he has sat out with a broken rib.

"For any player the worst thing that can happen to you is to be injured so I'm just happy to be back after being out for a few weeks," said the Israel international. "It was difficult but hopefully now I can keep working hard in training, try to improve and try to help the team.

"We know where we need to improve. We need to create more and do more up front. One point (against City) was not good enough but it wasn't bad either. We are still in the race for fourth place and that is the most important thing.

"We wanted to win but you have to remember that we were playing against a good team away from home.

"Hopefully the defence will keep playing well. We have got the best defence in the league - now we need to create more and then the goals will come."
