'Just not good enough'

KENNY DALGLISH admits that Liverpool's current form is just not good enough as the Reds prepare to face rivals Everton tonight.

Liverpool have slumped to seventh in the Premier League table and know that a win for Everton at Anfield tonight would see David Moyes' men go ahead of Liverpool and Dalglish has demanded an improvement in form.

"It's certainly not a record you expect from Liverpool," he said. "We've got to put points on the board. We just need to keep believing in ourselves and keep pushing forward. We've never gloated when we've won so we won't hang ourselves when we've lost. No-one is feeling sorry for themselves."

Everton go into the game high on confidence but boss Moyes admits that recent injuries to players like Ireland star Seamus Coleman are a worry.

"Some players are not as match fit as I'd like and that is a little bit of a concern for me. On Saturday I was a bit concerned about Seamus Coleman and whether he was going to be match fit but Darron Gibson is the only one who's missing at this present time really," Moyes said.
