Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is blaming their poor form on the lack of goals and revealed that the strike pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge last season was what made them so successful, Mirror reports.
Without the so called SAS attack force from the previous campaign, the Reds are finding it very hard to find the back of the net as they once again went goalless in their 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United.
“We have lost goals,” said Rodgers. “We scored 101 last year but take away nearly 80 per cent of that [Suarez and Sturridge] and it can become difficult, alongside the introduction of lots of new players. It is not rocket science.
“It has been a difficult start, not ideal. We can only continue to work well, that’s all you can do. If you work hard it gives you extra confidence, and ultimately confidence will then bring you success. It is certainly something we will strive towards.”
