Luis Suarez has promised Liverpool fans he still has much more to offer and is confident the team can improve on recent performances.
A disappointing goalless draw against Premier League newcomers Swansea last weekend – the club’s second stalemate against a promoted side this season – has led to suggestions the honeymoon period is over for manager and Kop hero Kenny Dalglish.
Uruguay international Suarez has been the shining light this season, scoring seven goals in 14 matches so far, but the 24-year-old is far from satisfied with his tally. People placing Premier League bets will be aware he has fired blanks in recent weeks.
His lean spell in recent games has coincided with a run of three draws at Anfield and just 10 points from six Premier League matches on Merseyside and the football online betting indicates they should be doing better.
Suarez, who has not scored since the 2-0 derby win at Goodison, said: “As a striker I am always going to get plenty of chances and I could probably have converted one or two more.
“I also know strikers go through periods where they are trying so hard to score and they don’t always go in. The main thing is I am playing well and the whole team is playing in the right manner.”
The recent deadlock against Swansea led team-mate Dan Agger to articulate “we ran about like headless chickens” but £22.8m signing Suarez sees no reason to panic.
The club’s leading scorer is confident results will pick up once Dalglish gets key players back from injury.
He told the club website: “I think all of the lads are playing well and although we know we have some injuries to key players like Stevie [Gerrard] and Carra [Jamie Carragher], we know we have players who can step up and perform well.”
