Liverpool may need to 'change philosophy' says Kenny Dalglish
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has conceded that a different approach may be neccessary after seeing his side beaten 2-1 by relegation contenders Wigan.
The defeat at Anfield was Liverpool's fifth loss in six Premier League matches, and means that the Reds have won just five of their 15 home league games this season.
Despite hinting at a need for change, Dalgish still has faith in a squad on which he's spent in excess of £100m, and points to their Carling Cup success and continued participation in the FA Cup.
"I think we've got good players," the Scotsman told the Liverpool Echo.
"It's a good squad and I have always said we have got that. You don't get to an FA Cup semi-final and win the Carling Cup if you aren't.
But Dalglish, who blamed tiredness in the immediate aftermath of the weekend defeat to lowly Wigan, concedes that change may be necessary.
"We've got a problem winning games in the league," he said.
"Maybe there is a lot we have to educate ourselves about and maybe not have to play the lovely football we try and play. Maybe we need to change our philosophies a wee bit."
Liverpool's next match is away against Newcastle in the Premier League. Defeat would see them trail the Magpies, who currently occupy sixth, by 11 points.
