Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Spirit has never dipped

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists there's no doubts about the spirit inside the dressing room.

In his match programme notes before yesterday's victory over Manchester United, Gerrard wrote: "There's no getting away from it, Liverpool don't lose four games on the spin. It hasn't happened for over 22 years, so we need to put it right.

"It's the first time we've experienced a run like this under Rafa. Now it's time to show a bit of character.

"We know we can close the gap on United to just four points, similar to when we went to Old Trafford and won 4-1 in March.

"This time, there is a lot more football still to be played.

"The mood in the dressing room is good. Obviously the lads were down after Tuesday night, but you come in the next day and start getting it out of the system. You pick yourselves up, and come this afternoon, everyone will be looking forward to getting back out there.

"Everyone's pulling in the right direction to try and turn things around."
