Liverpool boss looking at attacking improvements

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has called on his team to improve their goal scoring form having improved defensively. The Reds have only netted 42 goals in 24 games so far this season - the fewest of any side in the top six - with Fernando Torres sidelined with injury.

Benitez insists there has been an upturn in his side's performances of late and hopes the increased confidence at Anfield will produce a glut of goals.

"You have to keep analysing the big picture," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"If every week you think it is one step forward then one step back, you will become very nervous.

"So it is important to keep a perspective and giving confidence to the players. We have just had another win (against Bolton) and another clean sheet. That is a positive.

"Okay, it wasn't as good in attack as we want it to be but we have to keep pushing and we know can improve. We need more positives than negatives.

"The players know that we are improving. We are doing much better in defence and that is a big difference but we have to improve in attack, that is clear."
