Alcantara backs Liverpool strikers after they misfired in a third consecutive game

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has backed the club strikers to start scoring again after their goalless draw against Manchester United on Sunday.

The draw saw Liverpool was the third consecutive league game in which Liverpool have failed to find the back of the net but according to the Spaniard, the strikers will be firing again.

"Sure, look at the guys we have in front-not just the big three, let's say that. We have Div (Origi), we have Shaq (Shaqiri), we have Taki (Minamino), we have many players that can score, people in the midfield that can score as well, people from the defence can score. It's a matter of creating the chances that we are creating to be effective," Alcantara said.

The former Bayern man further admitted that the team felt low after the match as many things they had hoped for didn’t go as planned.

"We were intense, we were creating the chances that made us closer to winning. When we didn't realize and didn't make the goals, we're just getting our self-confidence a bit down and that's why the game changed a bit.

"At the end, it's football and in some minutes of the game you are in high emotions and sometimes you are low – it's part of the game," he added.

The draw saw Liverpool drop to fourth place with 34 points after Manchester City beat Crystal Palace in a game played later on Sunday.
