Lee calls for consistency

Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee accepts the side have to find more consistency and cut out the "indifferent results" which have blighted their season.

Having defeated Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea just over a week ago the Reds then struggled to a 1-1 draw at Wigan before losing at Stoke. Lee's assertion that they need to keep a more constant level of performance is highlighted by the fact that had they beaten the Latics and Stoke they would have been fifth, not 11th.

"I can understand the euphoria after our win over Chelsea but we have always said that we take nothing for granted," said the assistant manager. "We got a great result against Chelsea and then followed it up with two indifferent results. We are all asking that question about consistency, none more so than the players."

He added: "These players want to improve, get better and be more consistent.

"It's everybody, not just myself; (manager) Roy (Hodgson) and Mike Kelly (first team coach).

"We are all in it together and are all trying to find how we can get back to a more consistent vein of form.

"Even after the win against Chelsea we were still complaining and analysing things that we need to improve on.

"I can promise everyone that we are still working hard and trying to put things right."
