Captain Steven Gerrard has denied that Liverpool are in crisis ahead of a massive Merseyside derby on Sunday.

The Reds make the short trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton amid turmoil both on and off the pitch.

Roy Hodgson's side are languishing down in 18th place in the Premier League table after winning just one of their first seven games this season.

Meanwhile, the battle to take control at boardroom level rumbles on in the courts of both the UK and the United States.

However, Gerrard has denied suggestions that the Anfield club are in crisis.

"I don't think it's a 'crisis'. I'm not too worried," he said.

"Obviously the league table doesn't look too good at the moment, but we are close and I feel if we get a bit of luck going our way or we pull one big performance out the bag, things can improve and we can move up the table.

"I think everybody at the football club knows we need to improve things and improve results on the pitch."

Speaking about the ownership issues which could be resolved on Friday afternoon, Gerrard added: "Hopefully if things are sorted off the pitch, we can put smiles back on their (the fans) faces with good performances on it."
