Adam Lallana believes it is up to him and his teammates to 'stand up and be counted' as Liverpool look to emerge from their recent run of poor form by beating Arsenal on Saturday.

The Reds appeared to have turned a corner as they convincingly defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Anfield on February 11, bringing an end to a run of just one win in 10 games.

But, after a two-week break from action due to an FA Cup weekend, Jürgen Klopp's team resumed their campaign in disappointing fashion on Monday, losing 3-1 to Leicester City.

Next up for Lallana and co is the visit of a top-four rival to Merseyside in Saturday's late kick-off, and the midfielder knows togetherness is an absolute must if things are to take a turn for the better.

"I trust the boss, all the players trust the boss, and we're all in it together," he told BT Sport in a live Facebook broadcast.

"As you're in it together when you're succeeding and you're playing well, we're all in it together when things aren't going too well. 

"That's the position that we're in at the minute and we just need to stand up and be counted and take responsibility. And that's starting this Saturday against Arsenal."

Liverpool have won four, drawn four and lost none of their meetings with the other sides currently occupying the Premier League top six this season.

But it is in games against the league's so-called lesser teams that they have struggled, which Lallana insists is unacceptable for a side chasing honours.

"It's difficult to speak about that when obviously our record against the teams in the bottom half is nowhere near as good probably," he added.

"I think that shows that the ability and the belief is there in the squad but we're just not performing as consistently as we should be. We need to keep working on that. 

"Possibly it's a mentality issue and something that we need to learn quickly because time will eventually run out. 

"I want to achieve something special here at Liverpool and to do that we can't just perform against the big teams, we need to perform against every team and treat them the same."
