The win against Everton has boosted morale in the Liverpool camp.


Basel: Liverpool are confident that they can put a frustrating run of domestic form behind them when they face FC Basel in Switzerland in Champions League Group B on Wednesday.

The Reds are currently languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League, with Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Everton in the Merseyside derby, in which they conceded a stoppage-time equaliser to a stunning Phil Jagielka strike, following three defeats in their opening five matches.

But midfielder Jordan Henderson believes the performance against Everton, which featured a marvellous Steven Gerrard free-kick to put Liverpool in front, means they can go to the St Jakob-Park in a confident frame of mind.
