Skrtel urges Liverpool colleagues to be more clinical in front of goal
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has called on his team-mates to take their chances if they are to climb the Premier League table. The Reds surrendered a 1-0 lead to go down 2-1 to Tottenham last Sunday thanks to Aaron Lennon's stoppage-time winner.
"Losing that game was very difficult to take," Skrtel told the Liverpool Echo.
"In the first half we did really well and controlled the game. We scored one and created a few more chances.
"In the second half we let them get back in it and to concede again right at the end was so disappointing.
"It came down to us missing our chances. If you don't score goals you don't win games. We have to improve."
Skrtel admitted his first goal in a year mattered little to him as Liverpool ended up losing the game.
"It was nice to score a goal after so long without one but for me the most important thing is winning and we didn't do that," added Skrtel, whose own goal drew Spurs level.
"I might have scored but I can't be happy after that because we didn't get the result."
