Reina claims whole Liverpool team to blame for Torres goal drought

Liverpool keeper Jose Reina feels the whole team have to take responsibility for Fernando Torres' shortage of goals this season.

Liverpool keeper Jose Reina feels the whole team have to take responsibility for Fernando Torres' shortage of goals this season.

The 26-year-old hit only his second of the season in Sunday's 2-1 win over Blackburn.

But Reina reckons the basic problem was that his team-mates had not been doing the forward justice.

"All strikers are about scoring goals, scoring winning goals, and I think he can build on that strike from now on," said the stopper.

"It is more or less what is happening to David Villa (who has scored just twice in the Primera Division) at Barcelona now.

"It is about time because they are great players but when strikers are not scoring fingers are pointed at them - it is not fair.

"I think we were not assisting him rightly in the last few weeks and he could do nothing at all.

"He can win you a game easily but we have to feed him in, that is the point."
