Liverpool must improve defensively, admits Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that his side must improve in defence if they are to have any chance of winning the Premier League title next season, Sky Sports has reported.

The Reds finished second last season, just two points behind eventual champions Manchester City. They scored 101 goals in the Premier League, but the 50 goals they conceded was seen as a major reason why they did not claim their first title since 1990.


They are yet to bring in any defensive reinforcements so far this summer, but are reportedly close to signing Southampton’s Dejan Lovren for £20m. The Croat would add to a backline that already comprises Daniel Agger, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure.


After coming so close last time around, Liverpool will be among the favourites to claim top spot this time around, but Rodgers admits his side must find a better balance and defend better. He said: “(Defence) is a place where we want to be better, there’s no doubt about that.


“It wasn’t good enough to concede that many goals, considering the amount of possession we had and amount of goals we scored. Generally of course the whole team will be looking to improve, and there are areas that we will specifically be looking at between now and August.”
