The forward has also revealed his delight at hearing the Anfield crowd signing his name.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool striker Danny Ings has insisted there is no anxiety in the squad despite their poor run of form.

The Reds are currently winless in three games in the Premier League, having lost to West Ham United and Manchester United and drawn with Norwich in their last outings.

They also required penalties to see off League Two side Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, further increasing the pressure surrounding manager Brendan Rodgers and his side.

Ings, though, insists he has not sensed any anxiety within the squad despite their struggles.

"If I am honest, I don’t feel that there is [anxiety]," he told

"Every team goes through little spells like this every now and again but the important thing is that we are creating chances and for me we are playing good football.”

"As a player, it is huge to have the support behind you"

While the rest of the side are struggling, Ings has taken his chances so far, opening his account for the club with two goals in his last two games.

The first was the opener against Norwich, while he also opened the scoring against Carlisle in midweek, with his hard-working performances having earned him the respect of the Anfield faithful already.

They Kop has started to create a song for him and he says hearing his name sung by supporters gives him huge motivation as a player.

"As a player, it is huge to have the support behind you," he added.

"The fans singing your name definitely helps to build confidence and that really brings your game on. It is great to have them behind me and the team as well."
