Goals have dried up for the Reds in recent times, which is one of the major reasons why they have stuttered in their last few games.

Jurgen Klopp is determined to get the Liverpool frontline firing on all cylinders once again.

From getting eliminated from the FA Cup at the hands of Manchester United to seeing their 68-game unbeaten streak at home wiped out by Burnley, Liverpool have had quite a tough January so far.

Furthermore, they have managed just a single win in their last seven outings across all competitions.

Apart from the obvious defensive frailties, the inability to find the back of the net has contributed heavily to their dip in form with the Reds scoring only once in their last five Premier League games.

Mohamed Salah scored both of Liverpool’s goals in the previous match, taking his tally to 17 goals for the season. Sadio Mane, with 7 goals in 24 games, and Roberto Firmino, with 5 goals in 24 games, meanwhile, need to get back up to speed.

“I don’t want to make that every week now,” Klopp responded when his side have lacked confidence lately, via Goal.

“I didn’t see any confidence problems [against United]. But what we said is when you don’t score for a while it’s not good for the confidence, obviously.

“The best strikers in the world can tell you they all had moments when they didn’t score with each chance. But it’s all about how you deal with it. We are on it, believe me, and we will sort that.”
