Could Forgotten Man Be Key To Liverpool’s Finishing?

22 Sep

It has been well documented in the last few days that Liverpool are lacking a killer touch in front of goal, with recent games against Sevilla, Burnley and Leicester City providing frustrating spectacles for Reds’ supporters.

Failure to win any of the aforementioned games was hard to take as Liverpool dominated for long spells before conceding against the run of play, and supporters are hoping their team can end this frustrating spell away to Leicester tomorrow.

Liverpool have been playing some great football this season but their failure to finish teams off is killing them at the moment.

With games in the balance the pressure is always on Liverpool’s defence to stay tight, and apart from the wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, the defence hasn’t been reliable at all.

It has been highlighted by many about Liverpool’s defensive problems but if Liverpool could be more clinical with their finishing then it would ease the pressure on the defence.

Liverpool have been extremely wasteful in front of goal despite the amount of chances created and although they have some great attacking players like Coutinho, Mane, Salah, Lallana, Sturridge and Firmino, they don’t have a poacher to finish the chances off.

Sturridge is the nearest they have of the names mentioned, but he is not the player he used to be and doesn’t seem to get in the box as much these days when given the chance to play by manager Jurgen Klopp.

Firmino is Klopp’s preferred choice as striker, but although he is a terrific striker, he is not a natural finisher and this is what Liverpool need.

Could Liverpool’s forgotten man be the answer?

Danny Ings has endured a nightmare time regarding injuries since he joined Liverpool, but he is back and it was a highlight for Liverpool fans in an otherwise disappointing night on Tuesday when he returned to first team action as a second half substitute in the 2-0 loss at Leicester City.

Ings is the type of player that gets in the penalty box and is always looking for chances, he is a goal-poacher and he might just be what Liverpool need.

It looks really difficult for Ings to get much game time with the attacking players that Klopp has in his squad, but maybe the German should find a place for him in his team because he might just be the man to that finds Liverpool’s killer touch.

    I don,t agree at all with those comments. You have obviously got a short memory because although it is lovely to see Danny inges better he was never brilliant by any means. You simply cannot compare him to the forwards that we have. I don,t remember him, in the short time he played, getting hardly any goals at all. I have a friend who is a burnley supporter and he was not impressed at all when he played there.
