Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish claims he can do little to prevent speculation surrounding the club signing a new striker in the January transfer window.

The Reds have seen several missed opportunities prevent them from winning four of their last five home games, with the run broken against QPR on Saturday, as Luis Suarez's headed settled the contest.

However, with the Uruguayan having played for most of the year non-stop, Dalglish may be tempted to bring in a new striker to help bare the load for the reds.

Dalglish said: "We did miss some chances, yes, but the goalkeeper saved a lot of them too.

"Do I feel the need to go out and do something about that? Aye, whichever side comes along here next, we'll ask them to come without a keeper. That's the best way to do it, isn't it?

"Irrespective of what I say, it's not going to stop speculation we are going out in January to sign Joe Bloggs up front, or whoever. I don't need to say anything.

"For us it was a fantastic team performance. We are quite happy. I trust the players implicitly when it comes to scoring, implicitly."

Fellow January signing Andy Carroll has come under criticism for having not produced since his big money move from Newcastle United to Liverpool, with the likes of Roberto Soldado having been linked with a move to Anfield.

Liverpool have only notch 18 goals in the Premier League this season.
