Brendan Rodgers has denied suggestions there is tension in the Liverpool dressing room.

The Reds have endured a dreadful week, crashing out of the Champions League at home to FC Basel before losing 3-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Rodgers suggested he was dealing with a ‘fractured dressing room’ following the Reds latest defeat, but the Northern Irishman insists there are no problems within the camp.

He said: “Our dressing room is very strong, we are very fortunate we have got a captain [Steven Gerrard] who is a strong leader in dressing room and it’s something very important in my time here.

“Unrest is totally untrue, of course they are not happy not winning games, these are competitive players who almost won league last year, so won’t be happy they are competitive.

“Our spirit is very strong, and once we get that break, we will show that.”
