Match preview

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is confident his side have the battling qualities to overturn a difficult start to the Barclays Premier League campaign.

The Reds go into this Sunday’s visit to Crystal Palace in 11th position after picking up 14 points from their opening 11 fixtures.

A scintillating 11-match winning streak at the tail end of last season helped Liverpool come close to winning their first BPL title, but a loss to Chelsea and Crystal Palace fighting back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 in their last visit to Selhurst Park, meant they finished two points adrift of champions Manchester City.

Rodgers believes his side can rediscover their form and end a run of two successive league defeats this weekend.

"Adverse moments always provide you with the opportunity to go and fight even harder, and that's something we all aim to do here from the staff to the players - the club is very much together," Rodgers said. "It hasn't been a great start for us, but we know we're only a short distance away from getting a few results that will push us back up.

"We're also in the quarter-finals of a cup competition and it's still in our hands in the Champions League, but we've just got to focus on moving on from a difficult period. We need to win games and of course, that always changes the outlook."

Rodgers will now be without striker Daniel Sturridge until the New Year, after he re-injured his thigh during the international break.

New signings Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have bolstered the forward line but are still waiting for their first league goals for the Reds, and the Italian faces a late fitness test after picking up a hamstring injury while away with his country.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson has a similar problem but should be fit to feature this weekend as the visitors go in search of just their fifth top-flight win of the season.

A run of five matches without a win has left Palace above the relegation zone on goal difference, but Warnock wants his side to take heart from the narrow 1-0 defeat by Manchester United last time out.

"Our defence will have to put in another convincing display like they did at Manchester United, that is vital,” he said. “But we also need to create a bit more ourselves, it is all about finding that happy medium."

Warnock ruled Kevin Doyle out with a groin injury but is hopeful that James McArthur will overcome a calf problem in time.
