London - Manager Brendan Rodgers has dismissed talk of discord in the Liverpool dressing room as the team sits in the bottom half of the English Premiership.
Liverpool are 11th in the table after finishing second last season to Manchester City. The Reds were eliminated from the Champions League last week, but the manager still believes the players are united.
"Our dressing room is very strong," Rodgers said.
"That spirit is something that has been very important in my time here.
"I hear one or two bits and pieces about unrest and it is totally untrue. Of course, we're not happy that we're not winning games. These are competitive players and a lot of them nearly won the league last season.
"But the actual spirit in the group is very strong and that's one of the reasons why I believe that once we get the confidence back - through winning games and performing well, equally - then we'll go into the second half of the season and be much better."
Liverpool's seven league defeats in 16 games are one more than they had all last season. They face Bournemouth in the league cup quarter-finals on Wednesday before hosting Arsenal in the league on the weekend.
