Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones has dismissed criticism of team-mate Jose Reina's form and insists he has no worries about the Spain international's play.

The 30-year-old has, by his own high standards, had a poor last 18 months with mistakes last season being followed by errors already in the current campaign. But Jones, who is set to take over in goal as Liverpool begin their defence of the League Cup at West Brom, stressed that did not mean Reina had become a bad keeper.

"You don't get to the top, which is where he has been for the last five or six years, if you are no good - it is simple as that - and you don't stay there," said the Australia international.
