Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has challenged his side to sustain their recent good run as they approach a crucial phase of their season.
Liverpool have won their last five games, scoring 21 goals and conceding just one in the process. They travel to Reading this weekend before vital games against Marseille and Manchester United.
“I’m really pleased at the moment because we are creating chances, scoring goals, not conceding and we’re winning games. There are lots of positives for me to look at right now,” Benitez told the club’s official website.
“When you’ve scored 21 goals in five games and only conceded one then it would be easy to say that’s enough, but as a manager you always want to improve.
“We have a lot of players still to come back like Fabio Aurelio, Xabi Alonso, Jermaine Pennant, Daniel Agger and Steve Finnan and so when they’re all fit and available we can be better still.
“We’ve a big period coming up and we know that in football one result can change everything.
“Our confidence is high at the moment but we have to keep going and keep winning.
“There are lots of big games to look forward to – starting this weekend at Reading – and we have to show the right mentality in each of them.”
