There is no doubt that Luis Suarez is the best Liverpool player right now, he creates a lot of opportunities for himself and other players but one thing that is really standing out for me and does not make me too happy about Suarez is that he is not scoring enough goals for the number of opportunities he gets himself into.

Suarez is our go-to striker right now and we expect him to find the back of the net for us on a regular basis. Fair enough he has already scored 4 league goals this season but with the chances he craves out, he could easily have doubled this by now.

I may be asking a bit too much from our striker but we need to be scoring more goals right now and I can only see them coming from him at this moment in time.

Kenny Dalglish has said wee create the opportunities but we are unlucky not to be scoring following the Norwich game. “I think we’ve been brilliant in creating the chances,” Dalglish said. “It’s a huge pleasure for us that we’re creating that many chances. So we’ll look at the positives.

“The finishing side? Obviously we’ve got to add to it. But when you look at the facts and figures and reflect on what they’ve actually done and what they’ve actually created, you wouldn’t bet against scoring five or six on any given day, just not today.”

Is it down to luck that we are not finding the back of the net more regularly or do we need to look at the players, as in this case what I am doing to Suarez, and get them to sharpen up on the goal scoring skills?
