Liverpool’s confidence is at an all-time low, according to former Reds midfielder Jamie Redknapp.
The Reds have endured a difficult start to the season, with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently languishing in sixth place in the Premier League table.
And Redknapp believes that the team’s fragile confidence is to blame for their poor form.
“Liverpool are fragile at the moment,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“Their confidence is extremely low and it’s showing in their performances.
“They are making mistakes that they wouldn’t normally make and it’s costing them points.
“It’s a difficult situation for Jurgen Klopp and his team, but they need to find a way to turn it around quickly.”
Redknapp believes that the Reds need to find a way to get back to winning ways, and that the team needs to start believing in themselves again.
“The key for Liverpool is to get back to winning ways,” he said.
“They need to start believing in themselves again and start playing with the confidence that they had last season.
“If they can do that, then I’m sure they will start climbing the table again.”
Liverpool have a tough run of fixtures coming up, with games against Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham all on the horizon.
But Redknapp believes that the Reds can use these games as an opportunity to turn their season around.
“These games are a great opportunity for Liverpool to get back on track,” he said.
“If they can get a few positive results, then their confidence will start to grow again and they can start climbing the table.”
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool can turn their season around, but Redknapp believes that the team needs to start believing in themselves again if they are to have any chance of success.
