Reds relaxed, insists Bellamy

Three successive home draws, including being held by new-boys

Norwich and Swansea, have seen Kenny Dalglish’s side drop off the

pace at the top of the Premier League table. But the Wales striker

insists there are no real issues at the club and nothing to worry

about. “We have slipped up a little bit in recent weeks, and this

is no disrespect to Swansea, but if we have an ambition to finish

in the top four, we have to win those types of games,” he told the

Daily Mirror. “But we do have the players here to reach the top

four and get in the Champions League again. I feel this team will

get stronger and stronger as the year goes on. “Despite the results

at home, there is a great atmosphere around the place, it’s very

relaxed, but always with the view to getting into the Champions

League next season. “I’ve really enjoyed being back at Liverpool,

I’ve enjoyed working with a quality group of players. “Training is

very intense, but very enjoyable, and there is a feeling we will

improve. “Rafa Benitez’s team was very good too and very efficient.

“But I do feel this team – with Kenny’s stamp on it – isn’t too far

off Rafa’s.”
