Liverpool boss Dalglish defiant regarding poor scoring record

Kenny Dalglish is not getting too carried away regarding his Liverpool side's poor goalscoring form this season.

The Reds, who sit seventh on the table, have netted a meager 30 goals from 26 matches so far this term with only Stoke City and Everton the teams in the top 15 not to have score more than them.

But Dalglish believes that scoring is not the only side of the game you have to be good at and is not too concerned about the number of balls his players have put in the back of the net this campaign.

"The media seem to be obsessed (with Liverpool's goalscoring record)," he said.

"We've been through everything we can say. We'll continue to do what we do best: that is to play the way we train and if we play the way we train we will eventually get our reward.

"For us we had the disappointment immediately after the defeat (against Arsenal) but when you sit down and analyse it they can't do much more than what they did.

"There is nothing we said after the game that we feel we need to redress.

"If they keep playing like that and keep bringing performances like that against a quality side then we are going to win more than we lose."
