Steven Gerrard insists Liverpool should not panic despite recent form

Liverpool do not need to panic despite their recent run of form, according to former captain Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions and sit in seventh place in the Premier League, seven points behind leaders Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp's side have failed to keep a clean-sheet since their 4-0 win against Arsenal on August 27, but former captain Gerrard believes it is too soon to accept criticism, despite their start to the season.
"We're seven games into a Premier League campaign - there's no time to panic," Gerrard told liverpoolfc.com.
"We've got a wonderful manager and coaching staff that are looking after these players.
"I think everything is fine. I'm not one that jumps on the bandwagon and listens to criticism after seven games."
Following the international break, Liverpool host Manchester United at Anfield - live on Sky Sports Premier League - with defeat adding further pressure to Klopp's side.
However, Gerrard insists the team should only be judged later in the campaign and has every confidence Liverpool will prove a success.
"I used to judge myself and the team I was playing in at least 10 or 15 games into the season so let's see where we are then," he added.
"I've got every confidence we'll be in the top four and everything will be a little happier than it is at the moment.
"What the Liverpool team have to do at the moment is stick together and see where they are in four or five games' time."
