"Hard work pays and it's just going to be a matter of time until they can get the results to be rewarded by that. I think (confidence) will grow with results," Rodgers told the club's website.

(REUTERS) - Liverpool are training hard and it is just a matter of time before they get the results that will put their Premier League campaign back on track, manager Brendan Rodgers said.

The Reds have failed to win their last four matches in the league.

They last won 1-0 against promoted side Bournemouth on Aug 17 and are 13th in the table with eight points from six league games.

Liverpool drew with Bordeaux in Thursday's Europa League match and were held 1-1 at Anfield on Sunday by promoted Norwich City.

The Merseyside club have scored only four times this season, the second lowest in the league. Their slump has coincided with the loss of captain Jordan Henderson, who faces up to two months on the sidelines after breaking a bone in his foot during training.

"Hard work pays and it's just going to be a matter of time until they can get the results to be rewarded by that. I think (confidence) will grow with results," Rodgers told the club's website.

Liverpool, who face Carlisle in the League Cup on Thursday, will be eyeing three points when they host 17th-placed Aston Villa two days later.
