Brendan Rodgers believes Liverpool are almost back to their best following Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

Martin Skrtel rescued a point with a 97th minute header at Anfield, in a game in which the Reds managed 27 attempts on goal, and 65% of the possession.

The performance was particularly pleasing for the boss, however defensive lapses once again prevented the Reds from collecting a deserved three points.

Asked if they can still make it into the Champions League reckoning, Rodgers said: “Yes, absolutely – but is always going to be a big challenge.

“Of course, we have to make up points but we have shown this is a club that can go on a run of games.

“In the second half of last season we went on a run of 11 wins. The most important thing is the confidence.

“And, once we bring injured Daniel Sturridge back in January, we can get back to being that team.”

Rodgers also had words of praise for Martin Skrtel, who powered home the equaliser having earlier suffered a nasty head injury which required stitches.

“He is a strong character. He stayed on and scored a great header. He is a real warrior,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers added: “We are slowly getting back to where we want to get back to. Our performance was outstanding.

“The character and the quality of the team was very, very good. We have played better and dominated more than we did last year when we beat them 5-1.”

    So our deluded so called manager thinks we are getting back to our best does he. What I think he means is for most part of the season so far we have been dismal… this was a improved display and about time. He really has no idea, the team lacks strength in all departments, and most of all from their manager. Football wise I dislike this guy immensely he is small in stature and in mind feeble and week, just like most of his signings, he may not be alone in this department, after all he has that other useless MD Ian Ayre working along side of him……both of them are IMPOSTERS, enough said.

      Totally agree with all your comments. He is clueless. Lfc were very lucky to win against Burnley. He forgets football is meant to be entertaining, the crap he dishes up week in week out is anything but. I suggest he should watch replays of the games over & over again, to torture himself, he may just realise it’s anything but value for money. A big plus for me is Schoolboy Joe Allen is nowhere to be seen, at long last. My last suggestion is EVERY team needs 11 Athletes & skilful players, Like Germany & Bayern Munich. So that puts Gerrard, Allen, Sakho, Toure, Lovren, Henderson, Johnson, actually most of the team out of the equation.
