Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has backed the team to turn around their poor form and start to head upwards in the Premier League table.

The Reds have just six points from six games so far, and a number of supporters are already voicing their disapproval over the appointment of Roy Hodgson as manager.

Skrtel bemoaned Liverpool’s failure to take three points from Sunderland in their Premier League clash at the weekend, stating it was not for lack of trying. The Slovak believes things will get better soon though, starting with the Europa League trip to Utrecht on Thursday.

"We know we have to keep working and to try to win on Thursday when we go to Utrecht," Skrtel told the club’s official site.

"We think things will get better. You could see the second half performance [against Sunderland] was good from our team and we must improve. We need a victory and hopefully it will come in our next game."
