Goalkeeper Jose Reina believes Liverpool's season is only just beginning after seeing signs of recovery at Anfield.
Under the stable ownership of the Fenway Sports Group and with club legend Kenny Dalglish appointed manager until the end of the season, there is more cause for optimism than there has been for a while.
Reina believes that has filtered down to the dressing room and despite the fact Dalglish has yet to win after three games in charge, the Spain international is looking forward to a fresh start heading into the final four months of the campaign.
"We had a difficult start to the season but we take comfort from the fact that the team is recovering," said the 28-year-old. "In the last few weeks we've performed better.
"I'm just hoping this is the start of a good run for us in the second half of the season. In many ways it's just beginning now. The season is very long and this year especially we have seen a lot of unpredictable results.
"We must maintain calm and go from game to game. The key for us is to be strong at home and improve our form when we're away from Anfield."
