Brendan Rodgers admits Liverpool must be better in front of goal after wasteful Europa League performance

first_img Divock Origi 1 Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers accepted after the game that a wasteful performance in front of goal had cost his side in a disappointing performance against FC Sion.Liverpool took an early lead through Adam Lallana after only four minutes but were pegged back a mere 15 minutes later.Divock Origi and Lallana had a hatful of chances to win the game for the Reds and Rodgers admits Liverpool must improve in front of goal.“The result was disappointing, considering the number of chances we created,” he told BT Sport Europe.“We worked well and had a good start but gave away a disappointing goal with a young player just learning the game, it was probably their only chance.“To give away a goal like and create as many chances as we did, you’ve got to have enough quality to finish and that was unfortunately the story for us.“We worked hard but we should have scored the goals with the chances we created.”Origi showed glimpses of the potential that convinced Liverpool to splash out on him after the 2014 World Cup, but was guilty of missing several chances.Rodgers added: “We had a number of chances and you’ve got to be clinical. They were real good chances and unless you score them you won’t win at this level.“Give credit to them, they worked hard and defended well but we’re disappointed because we have to win a game like that.”On Origi’s performance, he said: “I thought Divock did well; all that was missing was a goal and he’ll be disappointed as he needs to add that to his game over the years.”last_img
