Kenny Dalglish keeping his feet on the ground

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has stated that his side were not over-confident after back-to-back league wins, but has targeted a victory against Wolves at Anfield on Saturday.

The Anfield outfit started the season looking like challengers, comfortably beating Arsenal and Bolton, but have lost their last two games against Stoke and Tottenham.

Despite this, the Scottish coach is keeping his feet on the ground, and has denied claims that his side have become complacent.

“We didn’t get carried away with the victories we have and we won’t get suicidal over the defeats we have either,” he stated in a press conference.

“We know it was not acceptable (at Tottenham) but the good thing is that the players realise it is not acceptable. At the same time we have to address the problems, if we have them, and we will do. We’ll do it properly and professionally.”

Dalglish is looking to get to winning ways at Anfield on Saturday, but knows that opposition boss Mick McCarthy will look to spoil the party.

“We’ll try and get ourselves back up and running on Saturday,” he continued.

“I think Mick McCarthy will be a bit disappointed at the moment as they’ve lost two league games back to back, like us, after a very good start. They came here last year and played very well and went away with a 1-0 victory.

“I think he’ll be encouraged by that and he’ll be looking for more of the same from his players. He’ll look to repeat what he did here at Anfield with regards to how he sets his team up,” Dalglish concluded.
