Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits the club's winless start to the season has increased the pressure on the players.

The Reds have taken just two points from their opening five Barclays Premier League matches, which have included home games against Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. They now have fixtures against Norwich, on Saturday, Stoke and Reading (both at home) which, ordinarily, they would be expected to take at least seven points from.

"We have a run of games coming up now where there are points we should be taking but the longer it (not winning) goes on the more difficult it is going to get so it is important against Norwich we take maximum points," said the 32-year-old.
