LIVERPOOL, England (AFP) - Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher insists his side's slow start to the season won't affect their Premier League title challenge.
Rafael Benitez's team lost two of their opening three league games and only narrowly claimed a come-from-behind 3-2 victory against Bolton on Saturday.
But Carragher, 31, believes that hard-fought success at the Reebok Stadium typifies the team's character.
The Reds made a habit of recovering going a goal down to win last season and Carragher expects more of the same this year.
"We have taken a bit of criticism and rightly so, because we haven't made the best of starts," Carragher told The Sun.
"But no-one can ever write us off. Ourselves and Manchester United, not just in this league but probably anywhere in the world, are the best at coming back from deficits and winning games.
"At Bolton, the lads showed what great character we have. It was so important to get those three points, especially with the international break coming up."
