Reina - Don't write off Reds

06 September 2009 04:52
Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina says the Reds will bounce back from their disappointing start. Rafa Benitez's side have won two and lost two of their first four Premier League games, leaving critics questioning their ability to challenge for the title. However, Reina believes such early doubt is unwarranted, and that a decent run will soon have the Merseyside club back in the running. Fresh off the back of a 3-2 win over Bolton, Liverpool now target back-to-back wins for the first time this season against new boys Burnley. Confident of a turn around in form, Reina insists the players will have soon put behind them their unexpected poor start by adding an element of consistency to their game. "It is not normal for Liverpool to open the season with two defeats from three games," he told LFC Weekly. "But it's still early days and in a few weeks time, we may have a run of wins behind us and the bad results will be forgotten about. "If a team is going to suffer from bad form, it's better for it to be at the start of the season because there is a lot more time to recover. "Many clubs have proven that over the years and gone on to achieve great things at the end of the campaign." He added: "There is a lot of pessimism about our chances this season from the media at the moment, but we are the only people who can prove them wrong. "We still have confidence as a squad and we have to put trust in each other - just like we did last season."
