Dalglish: Someone will get 'battered'

Kenny Dalglish believes it is only a matter of time before his Liverpool players click into top gear.

The Reds currently sit in sixth place in the Barclays Premier League and are unbeaten in their last eight outings in all competitions.

However, for all the chances they have created in front of goal this term, Liverpool have only found the net 14 times in their 11 league outings.

This has becoming a niggling frustration for Dalglish, whose Liverpool side have hit the woodwork more than any other in the top-flight this season.

The Liverpool boss, however, knows that a goal splurge will come sooner rather of later, and has warned the Reds' future opponents that someone will get 'battered'.

"There is a difference between confidence and arrogance, but I think the players should have belief in themselves," Dalglish told the press.

"It's difficult when the ball is not going in the back of the net for you, but they're certainly making enough chances to do that (score goals).

"Eventually they'll do it and somebody is going to get battered one day - the sooner the better for us.

"But even after they turn their chances into goals, it still doesn't mean the season is finished - we've just got to keep going.

"Just right at this moment in time, if they had converted a slightly higher percentage of their chances they'd be flying higher up the league."
