Virgil Van Dijk believes Liverpool lacks confidence but insists the Reds needs to stay focus in order to turn result around.

Liverpool captain Virgil Van Dijk has stated that the Reds lack confidence following their defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League.

Liverpool have slipped to the 10th position and conceded more goals in the Premier League more than they conceded last season.

Van Dijk, who was at the heart of the defence when the Gunners put three goals past them said the Reds lack that confidence.

“Confidence is definitely a thing that plays a part. You know, we are all human beings and sometimes you need a bit of confidence in certain moments and also if your confidence is not as high it is not helping in certain situations” Van Dijk said.

“If you’re not winning regular like we are used to then confidence is creeping away, but we know that it can turn around like that as well. We know we have to work and we have to work hard. That’s the only thing to do and the only way forward”.

Liverpool next match comes in the Champions League against Scottish side Rangers before facing Premier League defending Champions Manchester City in the Premier League.

Van Dijk admits it will be a tough one to turn result around but insists they need to stay focus to do that.

“That’s the reality” Van Dijk added. “We can’t change it now. Like I said, the only thing we can do is try to win the next game ahead of us. We know in the league it is going to be quite a tough one but first we have to recover, look at today [and] what we can do better because there will be plenty of moments that we can all do better.

“We have to focus on the Champions League because we have a big job there as well and then we’ll focus on the league again. The games come thick and fast – we just have to be ready”.
