Kolo Toure: Liverpool defender has called for calm in final fixtures

Kolo Toure: Liverpool defender has called for calm in final fixtures

Brendan Rodgers' side, who are four points adrift of leaders Chelsea in fourth, have kept just two clean sheets in their past 11 games stretching back to mid-December.

And despite beating Swansea City 4-3 at Anfield on Sunday, the Liverpool defence received more criticism for the way they played.

Toure, though, doesn't feel that now is the time to be critical and believes that the side must remain focused for the rest of the season.

He said: "We just need now to keep calm and do what we have been doing, if we continue that we will get the same results.

"There are going to be some tough games; Southampton [this Saturday] is a tough place to go but I think we can score goals and defend well as a team and we are working hard."

Liverpool are currently six points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and Belgium goalkeeper Simon Mignolet thinks that Rodgers should take credit for their performances this season.

He said: "We are in a good position at the moment with 11 games to go there are still a lot of things that can happen.

"We need to stay calm and focus on the next game. The gaffer gives everyone confidence. When you step on the pitch you know that he's behind supporting you.

"Everyone is trying to do their job the best they can and we need to keep doing that until the end of the season."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
