Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge claims the Reds are now a club "in crisis".

The Reds picked up their first trophy in six years by beating Cardiff in the Carling Cup final and they will be back at Wembley to face Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals. However, their Barclays Premier League form has been poor. Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Newcastle was their sixth in seven league games and they have lost eight out of 12 since the turn of the year.

It is a situation Aldridge - who played under Kenny Dalglish in the 1980s during the Scot's first spell in charge - feels needs addressing urgently. Writing in the Liverpool Echo, he said: "There is no getting away from the fact that Liverpool are now in a crisis."
