Alisson admits Liverpool confidence low ahead of Everton showdown

 Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson admits confidence is low going into Monday's derby against Everton.

The Brazilian goalkeeper accepts that the team need to acknowledge the current situation they find themselves in and get to work on rebuilding their fragile confidence, starting with the Merseyside derby next week.

Speaking to the club's official website, Alisson said: "It's a difficult moment – we recognise that. I think the first step you need to make for changing the situation is recognising your real situation. We are doing that. For this week, we have time, we are working hard. We know the importance of a derby and we know what is the importance and meaning for us to have a good performance, to show to our supporters that we still have the desire inside of us. We are going to do that and try to win the game.

"I think confidence is something that comes to you with good performances, good results – we are not having them at the moment. We are having moments where we are performing well during the games – just this doesn't give you confidence. But we know that in football everything can change quickly for the bad, for the good.

"Now we understand and we believe that in the next match everything can change for us. We are going to focus on the performance to get that confidence back and try to win the game to get the three points, no matter what. And fight for our team-mates, for the supporters, for the team, for the people that support us, for our families and be strong together."
