Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has further reiterated his intention to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.
The Reds started the season in eye-catching form, having won their first three games in the Premier League, before a minor blip, which saw them draw to Swansea City and lose to Southampton.
"The players have made an excellent start. We were disappointed at the weekend, we were a bit flat and subdued and just couldn't really get going," Rodgers told The Mirror.
"Part of that was because of the players we have available, but I know that the players I have give absolutely everything. Now we can only concentrate on the league through to Christmas. We have to make sure we stay up in the top six in the league and keep fighting. Hopefully we can reinforce again in January."
Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways as they face Sunderland in the Premier League this weekend.
