CHARLIE ADAM insists he feels under no extra pressure despite seeing Liverpool FC’s midfield options dwindle in recent weeks.
The Scot has started every one of Liverpool FC’s Premier League games since his summer switch from Blackpool, establishing himself as a key figure in manager Kenny Dalglish’s plans.
And with Lucas Leiva ruled out for the rest of the season through injury, Steven Gerrard still recovering from an ankle infection, and Jay Spearing suspended following his dismissal at Fulham, Adam is likely to have a major role to play over the next few weeks.
It was his cross which created Luis Suarez’s winning goal against Queens Park Rangers last weekend, and the 26-year-old is adamant he can cope with the demands of anchoring the Anfield outfit’s midfield.
“I’ve always felt responsibility,” Adam said. “When you come to a club like this you have to take responsibility and you can’t hide.
“The two we’ve lost is a big loss for us – one is the captain and one is an international for Brazil.
“It’s been difficult, but the lads have come in and done and great job.
“Hopefully we can continue that and it will be nice to see them back in the first team.”
