Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits he is not happy with his form this season but insists he is still capable of producing the kind of performances which have so often turned matches for his side in the past.

The England midfielder has cut a frustrated figure on the field at times and his comments only confirm what his body language has been saying for a long time.

"I think it can be better, if you look at my form through the season as a whole I am not totally happy, I have not reached the level I would like to be at," he said.

Gerrard, who was troubled by a niggling injury earlier in the season, has scored only nine goals this season - his worst campaign since 2006-7.

That has prompted questions about not only his form but his long-term future at the club.

However, Gerrard remains confident he can turn things around in the remaining seven Barclays Premier League matches of the season as Liverpool chase fourth place.

He added: "It is not worrying me as I still have confidence that it can switch and turn at any given time to where I would want it to be.

"I have played well this season but I have come out of games when I have not been totally happy.

"I am my own worse critic, I know myself when it is good and when it needs to be stepped up and the challenge for me now in the remaining games is to step up and drive Liverpool into fourth, try to go to the Europa League final and go to the World Cup."
