Steven Gerrard has called on his Liverpool teammates to rally and prevent their season from fizzling out, after a third Premier League defeat of the season at West Ham.
The Reds have now lost three of their opening five league games, to the surprise of many considering the superb form they produced last season.
And the captain has called on his side to build on the 2013-14 campaign, by improving their performance level quickly.
“Obviously I’ve been with this team when it’s had its dips and its bad times when you’re finishing seventh and eighth,” Gerrard said.
“Brendan coming in, for me personally and everyone connected to the club, was a breath of fresh air. He’s obviously moved me position-wise, which has given me a new lease of life and I’ve enjoyed that role in that team and that position.
“For me, I want to make the most of my last couple of years, I don’t want it to fizzle out and I don’t want people to look at me as if I’m just here to see out my career.
“I’m here to win and certainly this season and maybe next year I want to finish on a high note and the only way for that to happen would be to try to get a trophy in the bag and to keep Champions League here.”
