Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum believes the Reds are not “greedy” enough to score goals at this point.
The alarming slump of the Premier League champions hit a new low on Thursday evening when they lost 1-0 at home against Burnley and lost a Premier League game at Anfield for the first time since April 2017.
Wijnaldum had captained Liverpool for the evening, but the Dutchman lamented the shortcomings in the attack that prevented the Reds from scoring in their last four Premier League games.
[Burnley was] a really tough one,” Wijnaldum told Sky Sports.
“Before the game, we had good intentions to play against Burnley. We wanted to play good possession play.
“We created enough to score a goal but unfortunately we couldn’t. We were not sharp enough and they got the penalty.”
Ashley Barnes scored from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Alisson to hand Burnley all three points, with Liverpool running on a five-game winless streak.
Jurgen Klopp side have managed to score one goal in five games and Wijnaldum has admitted that the reds have issues in front of goal.
We 100 per cent had chances,” he added.
“Now in the situation we are in we are struggling to score. It is difficult to explain. People from outside will say we don’t have confidence. I still think we do.”
