Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge believes the new found belief among the players away from home can keep the Reds in the chase for Europe at Fulham on Monday night.

Kenny Dalglish's men travel to Craven Cottage needing a positive scoreline to move back into the top five of the Barclays Premier League - and Aldridge is pleased to have seen recent results on the road playing a big part in helping turn the season around.

"It's a million times better away from home than it was," he said. "We've still lost a couple but it's much, much better.

"Last season under Rafa and the first half of this season under Roy, the away form was pitiful. And that's being kind. I had no confidence that we were going to win games so I've no idea how the players felt.

"But Kenny has come in and even though we had the defeat to Blackpool, he's got the belief restored into the players. We're going away from home looking to win games now rather than fearing the opposition.

"But it will be a hard game at Fulham because over the last five or six years it's never  been a place I've felt comfortable going to. We have had some good results there, but we've had some poor ones as well.

"It wasn't long ago people were talking about Fulham being in a relegation battle but Mark Hughes has pulled a rabbit out of the hat and turned it around for them. They won 3-0 at Sunderland recently and their home form has been good. They've hit a really good run of late."
