Luis Suarez admits he is taking the rough with the smooth in a month that has seen a number of impressive individual performances, coincide with some frustrating results for Liverpool.
Three successive draws at Anfield has seen the Reds' progress temporarily halted, but the Uruguayan international is confident about the side's chances moving forward.
"I think if we had managed to pick up a couple more victories in those games we deserved to - the home games against Manchester United and Norwich - we'd obviously be a little bit higher up the league," Suarez told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"The important thing is the team has been playing well and, for the most part, getting the right results - but we still know we can do that little bit better."
It's worth noting that Kenny Dalglish's men remained unbeaten in the month of October, playing five games in which Suarez netted three goals - including a strike on his Merseyside derby debut against Everton at Goodison Park.
But the 24-year-old played down his goalscoring form, and credited the collective team performances - pointing to the squad's strength and depth as the main reason for optimism.
"I'm happy because the team has been performing well, but as a striker I am always going to get plenty of chances and I could probably have converted one or two more," he added.
"I also know strikers go through periods where they are trying so hard to score and they don't always go in. The main thing is I am playing well and the whole team is playing in the right manner.
"I think all of the lads are playing well and although we know we have some injuries to key players like Stevie [Gerrard] and Carra [Jamie Carragher], we know we have players who can step up and perform well.
"That's the good thing about having such a big squad - we have the quality for anyone to come in, do a good job and replace these players."
