Kenny Dalglish returned to the training ground with Liverpool today on a mission to carry out the “repairs” needed in the wake of his side’s defeat at West Ham.
The preparations will start for Sunday’s crunch clash with Premier League leaders Manchester United at Anfield.
Top of the list will be subjecting his players to a re-run of their miserable performance against the Hammers in a bid to iron out the errors which proved so costly.
No midweek game at least gives the manager the benefit of a full week at Melwood to prepare the Reds for the showdown with United.
“We will sit down and the players can go through the game,” Dalglish said.
“We will have a look and make sure we learn from the mistakes that were made.
“We will look to see where we went wrong and try to repair it.
“The pleasing thing was that the fitness and desire to get back in the game was still there. In the last 20 minutes we played well.
“Collectively we will move forward but we won’t dismiss it. We will get back in and see where we are on Tuesday. A week’s training will do us no harm at all.”
Dalglish will hope for positive news on the injury front. Fabio Aurelio and Daniel Agger both missed last weekend, while Martin Kelly and Raul Meireles limped off at Upton Park.
