Liverpool got off to a flier at the start of the campaign with their first three games including a 1-0 win against arch rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool suffered their first defeat against Southampton and were knocked out of the Capital One Cup thanks to a Javier Hernandez headed goal.

The Reds, still however, sit just two points behind leaders Arsenal and now only have the Premier League to focus until the FA Cup begins in January.

The Northern Irish manager wants his side to kick on until January - when he can add some fresh faces to the squad.

"Now we can only concentrate on the league up until Christmas," said the former Swansea boss.

"So we have to make sure we stay up in that top six in the league and keep fighting and hopefully we can reinforce in January.

"I think the players have made an excellent start. We were flat and subdued at the weekend (against Southampton) and we couldn't get going - part of that was because of the players we had available."

The Red's will be eager to get their form back on track when they travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland, who are propping up the table with one point out of a possible 15.

Summer signing Simon Mignolet will return to his former club, who seem to be in turmoil following the sacking of Paolo Di Canio, and insists there are plenty of positives from the season already.

The Belgian keeper told Sky Sports: "We have got a very good side. I think we showed that in the games we have played so far.

"For example the games against Manchester United, not only in the cup but also in the league - against a top team we showed that we are capable of harm and making sure we win those games.

"We have got a big game now on Sunday, where we want three points. We want to end up with the result."
