Rodgers encouraged by Reds form

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side are starting to show signs of the team they once were last season and is confident that will become norm in the second half of the campaign.

A third decent performance in a week saw Martin Skrtel salvage a point with a header in the seventh minute of added time as they drew 2-2 with Arsenal.

While the lack of a cutting edge was still evident the pace, pressing and passing which was associated with their run to second place last season is returning.

And that gives Rodgers hope 2015 will see greater improvements and a run towards the top four.

"For me the key is we are moving in the right direction with one defeat in eight so if we continue with that work-rate and mentality we will turn the draws into victories,"

"When we play our game and get back to that level we are a difficult team to play against."
