Kenny Dalglish backs Liverpool to find their best form and improve

Dalglish believes the early stages of this season is a massive learning curve for the club, and the manager.

Liverpool club legend Kenny Dalglish has backed the side to put their stuttering early season form behind them and to find some more consistency.

So far Liverpool have won two and lost three of their opening five Premier League matches as they're struggling to find that early season form that was good springboard for them last term.

Some have suggested that Liverpool's extra games that have come with Champions League qualification could be a big factor. 

Dalglish told TalkSport: "When you step up in class and you meet good opposition or you're playing extra games because of your success that's a learning curve.

"It's a learning curve for some of the players who have come in and it's a learning curve for Brendan [Rodgers], he's not been in Europe before. They'll take a bit of time to settle down but what they did last year they've been rewarded for.

"They've just got to kick on again this year and I'm sure they'll get it right. They got it right last year and came so close, I'm sure they'll do the same this year."

Injuries will be a factor for Liverpool, as well as the amount of players they brought into the club. Brendan Rodgers has been introducing more of his new signings to the side as the season is progressing - but the likes of Emre Can, Joe Allen, Daniel Sturridge amongst others at this stage of the season is also a significant reason why the side hasn't found their best form.

That's something that Rodgers has spoken about. Dalglish has said this is a learning curve for the 41-year-old Liverpool boss, with getting through this early season experience, and potentially having a successful looking season at the end of the term, could make the Northern Irishman a better manager at the end of it.
