Previously dominant and free-scoring Liverpool drew a blank once again on Thursday night in a game won by Mason Mount’s quality first-half strike and have now gone more than 10 hours without scoring from open play at home.
It is quite the comedown for a side that notched 85 times en route to ending their three-decade wait for a league championship last term and a key reason behind their alarming slump in an injury-plagued title defence.
“They don’t look like scoring,” he said on Sky Sports. “It’s not just the games in which they haven’t scored – you never even feel like the goals are coming. With 20 minutes to go, you don’t really feel like Liverpool are going to score a goal.”
He added: “The front six at this moment are not looking dangerous enough and there’s no one really out injured too much.
“You could say Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are missing in midfield but they’re more defensive players. That’s the real worry for me going forward – where the goals are going to come from next season.
“Diogo Jota will help that – he looked sharp when he came on. But Liverpool need to do something big in the transfer market in terms of bringing someone in to score goals.”
