Winger Xherdan Shaqiri says that Liverpool are only focused on trying to earn three points against Fulham, rather than looking ahead to other upcoming fixtures.
Winger Xherdan Shaqiri has called on Liverpool to ‘take one game at a time’ as they bid to get back to winning ways.
The Merseyside giants have failed to beat both Arsenal and Red Star Belgrade over the past weeks, and it has resulted in the club losing ground in both the Premier League and their Champions League group.
Liverpool host Fulham at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, and Shaqiri wants full focus to be placed on the contest with the Cottagers rather than being concerned with any important games in the future.
The Switzerland international told the club’s official website: “I think you take it game to game, not to look and think ‘in four weeks we play against this team’. No, Fulham is on Sunday and we have to win that game, close that game, then go onto the next one.
“That’s the most important thing to be successful, to stay on the highest level, to work hard every day. Don’t say ‘we have 27 points so now we can relax’.
“No, it’s just the beginning and we have to keep going like this and working hard to make ourselves better and achieve something and be with the best in the world. We are in a good way and we just have to keep working hard.”
Shaqiri has contributed one goal and two assists in 226 minutes of Premier League football this season.
