Klopp addresses "two things" when discussing Liverpool’s rough scoring record
Jurgen Klopp has spent the majority of Liverpool’s preparation for Manchester United looking to reignite his misfiring stars.
The Reds can end their old rivals’ title challenge, with victory at Old Trafford handing Manchester City an unassailable lead at the top of the Premier League.
But if they are to overcome United, Klopp’s men will need to rediscover their form in front of goal, after a frustrating week.
Liverpool dominated against Leeds and Newcastle in their last pair of games, but only had two goals and as many points to show for it.
Before facing the Red Devils, Klopp has admitted that there has been intense focus on their recent goalscoring woes.
“Last week (against Leeds and Newcastle) we had 36 chances and scored twice, that is obviously not a number you want,” he said.
“There are two things: we don’t score often enough but we create a decent number and that’s what we have to keep doing.
“We tried to help the boys, we showed them situations like this. Not shouting at them ‘How can you not score in this situation?’, just giving them different options in the moment, helping them with the right information.
“After the (Newcastle) game I was not in a good mood – no-one should have been. The next day it was slightly better but not much.
“Two days later I was completely fine and I watched five or six games of us in two days to try to understand things better.

“You just have to bring yourself again in these decisive situations and when you are there you try to make the right decision and that is what we are working on with a lot of things in training and talks as well, some video sessions.
“It was a busy week but no problem as I have nothing else to do, so we try to use the time.”
