Goals will come, says Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish is remaining upbeat about his players' performances this season, and believes it is only a matter of time before Liverpool have a change in fortune which will see them hit the goal trail.

The Reds boss was left frustrated after his side's 1-1 draw at home to Norwich on Saturday - a game which saw the Merseysiders create 29 shots on goal - but feels the squad will soon reap the rewards of their endeavours in front of goal.

"I think we've been brilliant in creating the chances," said Dalglish. "It's a huge pleasure for us that we're creating that many chances. So we'll look at the positives.

"The finishing side? Obviously we've got to add to it. But when you look at the facts and figures and reflect on what they've actually done and what they've actually created, you wouldn't bet against scoring five or six on any given day.

"I just keep waiting for our luck to change. As soon as our luck changes we'll be all right. And that's all it is.


"You can't say that we played badly in any of the games. I don't think anybody could say we played badly or that we didn't deserve more than what we got from all of those games. I don't think there's a game yet where we've taken more from the game than we actually deserved?"

Having strengthened Liverpool's midfield ranks over the summer, the injection of a creative spark has been evident at Anfield in the early parts of the campaign, but the only criticism is a lack of cutting edge further up the field.

But Dalglish denies that is the case, and feels that the club has a surplus of attacking options capable of firing the Reds to glory.

"Obviously I'd prefer both [to create chances and finish them]," he added. "But we'll remain positive.

"We'll look at the chances created, and there's a team [Norwich] that's gone to Manchester United three weeks ago and come away unlucky, with no points.

"Maybe they got the luck there today. It will certainly have been a more difficult game for them today than what it was at Old Trafford. We just want to finish off [our chances] and let the boys get their reward, they definitely deserve it."
