Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted he’s disappointed with how few goals the Merseysiders have scored this season, considering they bagged over 100 in 2013/14, reports Sky
The Reds have just 45 goals from 31 Premier League games so far this campaign, which is 39 less than they had this time last season. Liverpool have struggled against the top sides in the division too, and have scored one or less goals in their last three played.
The sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, and injury to Daniel Sturridge has certainly been a factor, but Liverpool’s alternate strikers – Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini, Raheem Sterling haven’t come close to delivering for the Reds.
Manager Brendan Rodgers is disappointed their goals tally has gone down considerably, as they boast a lot of creativity in the squad that make a lot of chances for teammates in games. The Liverpool boss revealed that he is trying to find a way to solve their woes in the final third, and did hint that he’s been unfortunate in not having his best striker fit for the majority of the campaign.
