The Reds boss insists he will not change the philosophy at Anfield despite their recent drought, with his side finding the net just 21 times in 18 games this campaign

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has revealed he is unconcerned by his side’s lack of goals this season, and remains confident the Reds fortunes in front of goal will change sooner rather than later.

The Merseyside outfit have managed to score just 21 goals in their 18 Premier League games so far this season, which has turn led to a turbulent run of form at home, with Liverpool drawing six of their nine games at Anfield this campaign.

Dalglish told reporters: "If you want to be really positive you could say we are undefeated at home but we've said before we don't want to set our standards that low.

"We want to be winning our home games as often as we possibly can and we've certainly given ourselves opportunities to have won every home game.

"We haven't done that but we will keep going and we believe we will do.

"I suppose every change you make can be termed drastic; we have changed formations, we've changed players, but the one thing we won't change is our philosophy so we'll keep going with that.”

Liverpool's forward line has come under criticism this season for failing to be more clinical, and Dalglish insists that a glut of goals would be a huge confidence boost not just for the club's striker's, but the entire team.

He added: "I am sure confidence plays a huge part in everything that you do so there will be some people more confident in front of goal than others.

"But there is nothing a goal for any individual - and the team - wouldn't help.

"They have been really strong so far in the fact they have got in there and continue to do so.

"The other night there were 27 chances, which is massive. We'll keep plugging away there. We just need the Kop to blow one in for us or the goalkeeper to throw one in."
