Benitez banishes away day blues

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admitted their first away win of the season will lift their mental block on the road.

Benitez said: "For the next two weeks people won't be talking about how we have to win away from home, we've done that now."

Liverpool came from 2-0 down to win 4-2 at Fulham and Benitez said: "This will be a great game for our confidence.

"We played well in the first-half and had the game under control but gave away two goals."

Benitez saw his half-time substitution pay dividends as Xavi Alonso inspired Liverpool to victory.

Milan Baros scored twice - one via a deflection off Zat Knight - but Alonso was the architect of Liverpool's fightback with his vision and range of passing.

Benitez said: "Alonzo is a good passer especially for the wingers and forwards.

"He played well within the team and this will give him more confidence."
