Some of the key stories involving Liverpool Football Club on this Wednesday evening.
Aldridge also said that Liverpool need to start grinding out results away from home, having only won two games on their travels so far this season.
Aldridge said in his column for the Liverpool Echo: ‘Losing the inspirational skipper was like going down to 10 men. Everyone else has had to put a bit more and in the end we finished the game [against West Ham United] really strongly.
‘We need to start grinding out results when we play away. I just think we’ve been far too open in away matches so far this season.
‘First and foremost, it’s about defending. It’s about getting players back behind the ball and being compact and well organised.’

Dalglish said: ‘Luis has been fantastic. He’s a great entertainer and he’s a humble guy. He’s somebody that really enjoys working in training, he is never a problem in training. And he’s fantastic on the pitch.’
Dalglish also had praise for Jon Flanagan describing him as ‘a good lad and a good player.’
Flanagan said himself that he was proud of the praise he received from one of his heroes in the form of Steven Gerrard after filling in at left-back for the past three Premier League games.
He told the club’s website: ‘It’s always good when your teammates recognise what you have done on the day. It does give you confidence going into the next game.’
The report says that sources in Italy say the 24-year-old midfielder wants regular first-team football ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
