thumbnail Hello,

The Reds play Norwich City on Saturday and, two domestic finals aside, the Anfield boss is aware that games have not gone their way with only one league win in 11 matches

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish would prefer his team to play "rubbish" and get points in the final four games of the season.

The Reds face Swansea City, Chelsea and Fulham after travelling to Norwich City on Saturday, hoping to secure just their second win in 12 games, and the Kop legend, who has guided his side to a League Cup triumph and an FA Cup final this campaign, admitted that results over performances are the main aim for the Merseysiders now.

“We want to win games but it would be nice if we were rubbish and won a game," Dalglish told reporters on Friday.

“Our incentive is to get as much as we can from every game we play.

“We want to finish with as many wins and points as we possibly can and the incentive we have is just representing the football club as much as anything else.

“We have always set ourselves high standards in terms of the level of performance and there are not too many times when we've let ourselves down on that front.

“But winning is what it is all about and points on the board is what it is all about.”

Liverpool have scored seven times less in the league than their opponents this weekend, and the Canaries could go level on points with the Reds with a win.

Dalglish added: "There is no one happy with what has happened in games and we've said that in our post-match interviews.

“But nothing changes in the week to what we have said after the game.

“The less you have to change the easier it is and it is great credit to the players that they continue to get in there and try their best to win the matches.

“They show great resolve and determination - but I am repeating myself. We know that they are good players and that is not being arrogant or big-headed.

“There is not much more we can say and there are no answers coming up. Their performance level is very high so if they continue to play at that good level then eventually it is going to work for us.”
