Kuyt remains convinced it is only a matter of time until El Nino is back amongst the goals and feels they have the makings of a prolific pair.
"Tonight we created a good chance together," he told liverpoolfc.tv.
"Against Sunderland and West Brom it worked well, so I think we can play well together but tonight wasn't the best game for us or the team.
"It's just a matter of time for Fernando. I said that after the Sunderland game when people were talking about him not scoring, but he still provided two assists.
"Tonight he missed a chance, but he is human and can miss chances like everyone else. I'm sure his goals will come."
