Gerrard urges Anfield fans not to panic.

STEVEN GERRARD has called on Liverpool fans not to panic despite the disappointing defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

The club legend believes the key to the Reds' revival could be the return to fitness of Daniel Sturridge and captain Jordan Henderson, as well as Philippe Coutinho's return after suspension.

Gerrard was left dejected after the performance at Old Trafford, and now believes the clash with Norwich on Sunday is a must-win game for Brendan Rodgers' team.

He said: "I'm still a bit dejected from the performance and the result.

"It's still a bit raw but you have to understand the bigger picture. It's still early on in the season, we're on the back of two poor performances and results.

"But there's still a lot of time to recover and with the fixtures we've got coming up hopefully we can take six points and start mending that damage.

"I was expecting a big reaction from the West Ham performance and it never came until the second half. When you play the big teams it's too late. You can't afford afford to react in the second half."
