The former Liverpool player called the Reds “rudderless” just a few days back but has now changed his mind and believes that the team is showing signs of recovery now.
Liverpool managed to move to 10th place in the Barclays Premier League campaign following a hard fought 2-2 draw against Arsenal, a result that followed up victory in the League Cup in midweek.
And while talking to BBC Radio 5 live, Lawrenson feels that the team has slowly started showing signs of revival thanks to the change in formation which he believes is now getting the best out of the players.
“Rodgers changed the formation to 3-4-3 and it seems to work much better.”
Lawresnson, a winner of five league titles with The Reds during his player career, earlier felt that Rodgers made a lot of strange choices and did not have a definitive way of playing unlike last season. Moreover, he also felt that the club has gone backwards since the exploits from last season.
As things stand, Brendan Rodgers’ men are nine points behind West Ham United who are currently occupying fourth place but Lawrensons says that all this could change with the return of Daniel Sturridge who he feels, will improve the team.
