Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is hoping that the Reds can seal their first victory of the season this weekend after a slow start to their Premier League campaign and push on from there, as reported in the Daily Mirror.
A narrow and somewhat unfortunate defeat at home to Manchester United last week must be forgotten according to Gerrard and he feels they have a set of fixtures where points are available.
“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,” Gerrard said.
“If you look at the performances against City and United we should have six [more] points so it is not a case of ‘they’re out the way now, let’s go beat the sides we should beat’.
“I think what we need to do is keep playing like we have done and hopefully we’ll get the rub of the green, get referee’s decisions in our favour and we will go on and take maximum points.
“Of course it puts more pressure on us. If we had won against United and beaten City everyone would be saying about how good a result it was at Sunderland (a 1-1 draw).
“But because that win hasn’t come it seems as if we dropped points at Sunderland, so it is no good getting a point from these tough away games any more, we need to win them.”
