Liverpool's Rodgers not worried about misfiring Suarez

LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, (AFP) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is not concerned about Luis Suarez's problems in front of goal after the Uruguay forward drew another blank in the 1-0 win over Reading.

Suarez has managed seven goals this season - including a hat-trick in the 5-2 win at Norwich last month - but has also been guilty of some poor finishing at times.

The 25-year-old missed another host of opportunities against Reading on Saturday, which led to Liverpool's first home league win of the season having an unnecessarily anxious end.

Other than the comprehensive win at Carrow Road, Rodgers' side have only managed more than a single goal on one occasion in their eight league matches this season.
