Kenny Dalglish has told reporters that Liverpool's current form is the worst run he has experienced at the club, but insists they can pick themselves up.
Liverpool have one just once in their last seven Premier League games, losing the other six and the run means that only Wolves have scored less points in the 2012 calendar year.
"I do not know if I have experienced a run like this," the 61-year-old Scot told reporters. "I don't remember anything as a manager or a player - or even as a supporter.
"Someone told me for the club it was the worst since 1953. I am not that old and so cannot remember that far back."
Despite the poor form, Dalglish insists the club can pick themselves out of the slump if they believe in their own abilities.
"Everyone is disappointed with the results and understands it is much more enjoyable when you win games," Dalglish added. "I've been disappointed but I've never been down.
"Everyone needs picking up but the best way to pick yourself up is to put in a winning performance. We cannot go about feeling sorry for ourselves.
"For us we just have to work hard and have belief and confidence in our ability because there is bags of ability there."
Despite the indiscipline shown by Pepe Reina and Andy Carroll's tantrum when subbed against Newcastle on the weekend, Dalglish believes both issues have been dealt with.
"Both were frustrated but that was dealt with and done and dusted on Sunday," said Dalglish.
"Anything that had to be done was done there and then so it doesn't fester for anyone.
"I don't know how other people [outside the club] have reacted but we have reacted properly, promptly and correctly."
