Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed that he is not concerned with his side's goalscoring issues after the Reds were only able to draw 1-1 against Burnley despite having 35 attempts on goal.
Klopp's men peppered the goal with shots but were unable to score more than one and eventually drew the game. The same also happened during the Champions League tie against Sevilla where Liverpool drew 2-2 despite enjoying the better opportunities.
According to the Independent, on asked if he was worried about missed chances, Klopp said,
Klopp: "If we we're not creating chances then I'd be really concerned but we are creating. We had enough chances to win."— Anfield HQ (@AnfieldHQ) September 17, 2017
“I’m still a football fan but I cannot think after 25 years in the business like a football fan but I know that the mother of all goals is the opportunity, the chance. If we we’re not creating chances then I would be really concerned but we are creating. We had enough chances to win."
“It was a good day but not a very good day and that’s why we made a few wrong decisions on the pitch but this was a really hard game to play and that has to be recognised. We will carry on," he added.
Liverpool have also been plagued by defensive issues and often find themselves conceding completely avoidable goals, as they did against Sevilla and Burnley. However, Klopp believes that such problems can be resolved by the team.

“It’s not that we have big issues, it’s not as if you can say: ‘If they don’t change that they will never win again’. We all know that in a lot of moments, fortune was not on our side, that’s the way it is."
"We don’t take that as an excuse but I cannot ignore the positive things, that is not allowed in my job," the former Borussia Dortmund manager added.
The Reds next take on Leicester City away in the League Cup on Tuesday before facing the same opposition in the Premier League next weekend.
