Benitez: We need to get back to winning ways

Benitez told Liverpool’s official website: “It’s a really important game for us and we want to get back to winning ways.

“Obviously it’s been frustrating not being with the players after Bolton because we need to work with them, but at least we’ve had time to analyse what went wrong and get a clear idea in our minds of what we need to do in the future.

“Games after an international break are always difficult but we’re at home this weekend in front of our supporters. Our record at Anfield this season has been fantastic so hopefully we can get another good result on Saturday.”

Liverpool will face in-form Blackburn Rovers in a Premiership match at Anfield this weekend.
