Lee showing no signs of nerves

Liverpool assistant boss Sammy Lee says he is confident the team can move on from their patchy early season form to head a confident title challenge.

The Reds have won two and lost two of their opening four Premier League games prompting questions to be raised over their credentials as potential Champions.

But Lee says that every game has been, and will be, tough this season but is sure the side can turn good fortune around and has what it takes to bring the league title back to Anfield.

“We knew it was always going to be a difficult start with the games we had,” he told the club’s official web site.

“I think you’d have to say it’s been a mixed start – the results tell you that with two wins and two losses.

“But we’ve said on many occasions there are no easy games because the Premier League is one of, if not the, most difficult leagues in the world.

“If there is an easy fixture out there then you’ll have to point it out to me because I haven’t seen one yet.

“We’re fully prepared for that and know what to expect, and we hope everybody else does too.

“We know full well that it is a long campaign and it is important that nobody gets carried away or too down about any given moment. We’ll look to keep improving and I’m sure we’ll do that because we have a fantastic squad.”

Earlier this week Lee admitted an improper conduct charge by the Football Association for his touchline demonstrations towards the end of Liverpool’s opening day 2-1 defeat to Tottenham.
