Liverpool boss Rodgers answers reports of dressing room unrest

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has dismissed reports of dressing room unrest at Anfield. "I hear one or two bits and pieces about unrest and it is totally untrue," said the Northern Irishman. "Our dressing room is very strong."

Liverpool face Bournemouth in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday before hosting Arsenal on Sunday.

Rodgers added: "These are competitive players who nearly won the league last year, so they won't be happy with losing.

"But the actual spirit in the group is very strong.

"That is one of the reasons why, when we get that confidence back, then we will go into the second half of the season and be much better."

"Expectancy on us this year is based on how we worked last season," added the former Reading and Swansea boss. "We know what we had last season and this year that dynamic has totally changed."

He continued that, as Liverpool boss, there would always be pressure but said he believed he would turn the club's fortunes around.

"As a manager, you will always have tough periods, but I have great confidence in how staff and players work," he said.

"We just need a little bit of luck and a break and I think we will get that. When we get some consistent results we can push on."
