Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has scotched reports of unrest in the Anfield camp after a disappointing start to the season.

"The team is very happy in terms of the relations with each other and we aim to continue to simply work hard and gain positive results," said Rodgers (left) ahead of his team's Champions League clash with Basle this evening.

He did, however, admit that he has warned defender Mamadou Sakho about his behaviour.

The France defender stormed out of Anfield ahead of Saturday's Merseyside derby having discovered he was not in the squad.

"It is not something we expect from any of our players but we have spoken," he said.

"He knows fully the situation, he apologised and we move on from it.

Liverpool will have to face the Swiss champions without the services of Daniel Sturridge as the England striker is not yet fit to return from a thigh strain which has sidelined him for five matches.
