Liverpool captain talks about the Reds goal drought.


had a good start to the season, but the Reds have not been so lucky in recent weeks. After the amazing 7-0 win against

Crystal Palace

, Liverpool ran out of luck in their attacking line.

Liverpool have only scored one goal in their last four Premier League matches. However, the Reds’ captain,

Jordan Henderson

believes the team doesn’t have an attack problem.

“One of our greatest strengths as a team in the last few years is that we don’t dwell on previous games whether they have been good, bad or indifferent. What we have done, though, is take any lessons we have learned and put them into practice.”

Henderson said ahead of Burnley clash.

“This is something that is particularly important during the current period when we are looking to get back to our best.

“We know we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment. Goals are not coming as freely as we would like them to, and games are becoming more difficult as a result. This is a team issue, not an 'attack' problem, because one thing that the gaffer has always drummed into us ever since he has been here is that we are all responsible for everything.

“Every single one of us is responsible for the team scoring goals and every single one of us is responsible for the team not scoring goals. It is that simple.

“This approach has always served us well and we will not deviate from it. I’m well aware that outside of the club there will be those who, justifiably at the moment, will be critical of our form and will also look at areas of the team and individuals who they feel could do better. This isn’t a path that we will go down.

“These are all things to build on, but to do that we have to learn the lessons that I mentioned at the very start of these notes.

"Being more ruthless in front of goal, making better decisions in the final third, giving our attackers better support, playing with confidence and belief at all times and remembering the qualities that have served us so well would all make a positive difference right now. To reiterate what I’ve already said: that is down to every single one of us.”
