Fired up Cole in confident mood

Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole hopes hard work will help change his luck and turn around a disappointing first season for him at his new club.

The 29-year-old moved from Chelsea on a free transfer in the summer but he has suffered a number of injuries which have resulted in a stop-start campaign, where his infrequent appearances have mainly come in the Europa League.

The England international said: "I am just going day by day. I am enjoying my football and I love to go into training with a smile on my face."

He added: "I'm trying to get a run in the side and trying to get back to where I need to be.

"If you work hard you get a bit of luck here and there and I am sure my luck is around the corner.

"This is a cracking club and I really think we are going in the right direction with Kenny Dalglish, Steve Clarke (first-team coach who also worked with Cole at Chelsea) and Damien Comolli (the director of football strategy)."
