Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has explained on the club’s website what he feels is the club’s main problem.
Rodgers has suggested that three players on six goals each as the club’s top scorers isn’t good enough and is an area that he and the club have to look at trying to improve.
“When everyone is fit and available we are able to compete with this squad, but our top goalscorer is on six goals,” he said.
“Three players on six goals. That's the reality of where we are at, and we have to find solutions for that. It's about finding what suits the players.”
Daniel Sturridge possesses everything in terms of skill to help fill the void which has existed since Luis Suarez left the club, but his battle against his own fitness and the fact that Mario Balotelli just hasn’t worked out is worrying for the team.
Rodgers has also had to contend with off the field matters related to Raheem Sterling and there’s no doubt that Liverpool are searching for something up front and some sort of combination of players, which will pay off for the club.
Rodgers is a manager who likes to tinker with things and make subtle changes to his teams and he’ll be searching for something within his tactical system, which works for the side over the rest of the season.
The top four is now seven points away and it would take a remarkable run of results for the Reds to force their way back into the Champions League places.
Regardless of where the club finishes this season, the boss is going to have some work to do in the transfer market.
