Liverpool star John Arne Riise says Liverpool will beat Blackburn on Saturday.Liverpool star John Arne Riise is ultra-confident that his side will overcome Blackburn on Saturday to arrest their disappointing start to the season.
The Reds have taken just seven points from six games in The Premiership so far this season, suffering heavily from an inability to find the net, and Riise is keen that this damaging trend is reversed.
The Norwegian star voiced his desire that the European Champions would hit a rich vein of form, and is sure that victory against Mark Hughes' side will follow.
"At home we shall win," Riise told Nettavisen.
"We are really keen to get started with a string of wins, especially after the disappointing 4-1 defeat against Chelsea.
"There have been too many draws but I actually feel we could have won all those matches.
"We shall now beat Blackburn."
However, Norway team-mate Morten Gamst Pedersen does not share Riise's sentiments and believes his Blackburn side cannot be ruled out at Anfield.
"I have never lost against Liverpool," said Pedersen.
"It will be tough but we have got every chance."
