Steven Gerrard gives his thoughts on Liverpool's Premier League season

While Liverpool’s start to the new season has been far from ideal, it certainly hasn’t been a disaster either.

It’s easy to forget that Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost just once in the league - a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City after Sadio Mane was sent-off - and are still unbeaten in the Champions League, although they have drawn both matches.

But when you consider that they’ve won just three of their seven league matches, are seven points behind both Manchester clubs, are already out of the Carabao Cup and are making hard work of a relatively easy Champions League group, it doesn't sound great.

Like we said, it's a far from ideal start.

But perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised.

The Reds were disrupted with the Philippe Coutinho saga at the beginning of the campaign, while they have no doubt missed the work-rate of Adam Lallana - who is still sidelined.

At times, they’ve looked irresistible. At times, they’ve looked really poor.

And seven games into the season, they sit seventh.

Given their inconsistent start, it’s hard to really predict what this season has in store for the Merseysiders.

But one man is in no doubt how the rest of the Premier League will play out at Anfield.

That man? Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard is still backing Liverpool

The former midfielder is currently managing the club’s Under-18’s and believes the first-team will still finish in the top-four come May.

“We’re seven games into a Premier League campaign - it’s no time to panic,” said Gerrard, per the Mirror.

“We’ve got a wonderful manager and coaching staff that are looking after these players.

“I think everything is fine. I’m not one that jumps on the bandwagon and listens to criticism after seven games. I used to judge myself and the team I was playing in at least 10 or 15 games into the season.

“So let’s see where we are then. I’ve got every confidence we’ll be in the top four and everything will be a little happier than it is at the moment.

“It only takes one big win and one big performance, where you blow someone away, and then you’re back on the right track. Liverpool are very capable.”

And Liverpool will have the perfect chance to record that “one big win” after the International break. They host Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and will be hoping to “blow them away” to get their campaign well and truely back on track.
