Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana says the increased level of confidence within the Anfield dressing room is now clear for all to see and is the main driving force behind the Reds’ resurgent recent form.
Liverpool have collected nine wins in a dozen Premier League games since losing to Manchester United at Old Trafford in mid-December.
That unbeaten run means Brendan Rodgers’ side have hauled themselves right into contention for a top-four finish with Liverpool now just two points behind United in fifth place.
According to Lallana, Liverpool have turned a corner since that setback at Old Trafford.
“It is great to be playing with such good players and the results are on the up,” the England midfielder said.
“We have a great rhythm and a good bit of consistency and are keeping clean sheets as well. We’ve turned a corner since Christmas and we are really looking good.”
Liverpool are on FA Cup duty this weekend when they welcome Championship side Blackburn to Anfield on Sunday.
Rodgers’ team have so far knocked out Wimbledon, Bolton and Crystal Palace and are currently priced at 2.80 to win the competition outright this season.
Lallana is optimistic that a new-found level of confidence amongst the squad will help them stay on course for success.
“We have players back fit and we have found a system, we are playing really well and are causing teams problems,” the former Southampton captain added.
“Confidence is a big thing in any team and we have that in abundance and I think it is showing.”
