Liverpool have found the net just twice in their opening three Barclays Premier League fixtures – both the goals coming from set pieces in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City.
The Reds again paid the price for not converting the chances and were beaten by Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday as goals from Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla helped the visitors to earn a comfortable 2-0 win. However the Boss believes his Liverpool side can become more clinical by being more patient.
“It’s something you continually work on all the time,”
“We’re still getting the balance in a couple of areas of our game. We build the game very well through the thirds, but it’s about making sure that when we arrive in the final third, if we can’t find the moment to score straight away, we maybe have to have that wee bit more patience.
“That has a knock-on effect to the team. When you are that little bit more patient at the top end of the field, everyone else behind that then can get into position.
“We’ve created enough chances to score goals in the games. That’s been pleasing.
“It’s finding that football intelligence at the top end.”
“West Brom, the first half was very good; we showed in the Manchester City game that we could be competitive; and then against Arsenal we weren’t quite at our best.
“There are a number of reasons for that, a lot of players were playing their third game in a week and you could see that played a part.
“It’s still very early on. We hope as time goes on we progress and can improve.
“I never get too disappointed when we lose or too carried away when we win.”
I feel Rodgers should play Borini as the centre forward and Suarez as the wide forward. Its a goal poacher that we are lacking and Suarez at times tries to overdo his dribbling which ends in wasting good chances. By moving him to the flanks, Suarez will get more space and freedom to play his natural game and Borini will get more chance to be in the box to score goals.
