Liverpool maintained their stuttering start to the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Sunday.

The England forward certainly looks a different player to the one who, along with Luis Suarez, almost fired Liverpool to a Premier League title in 2014. He has the potential but, for whatever reason, he is unable to find his best form, despite being given chances.

That was his third start in the Premier League this season and he won't be surprised if he is dropped after the international break.
