Rodgers targets attacking reinforcements for Liverpool
LIVERPOOL (AFP) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers feels his side need to add "one or two" attacking players in the close season after failing to unlock Everton's defence in a 0-0 draw with their Merseyside rivals.
Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger all missed good chances for the hosts, who are now almost certain to finish below their neighbours in the Premier League as they trail them by five points with just two games to go.
"We need to find one or two players to help make the difference in games like that," said Rodgers. "We have had a lot of draws now this season (13) and we need to find a solution for that. "We were not at our best against Everton, but you have to make sure you're competitive. We have kept another clean sheet, which is 15 now for the season.
"You need to be strong defensively as well as attacking. We have scored a lot of goals this year, but we need to improve against teams who defend and sit back." While the talk before the game was about a possible power shift on Merseyside, afterwards the main discussion point was Sylvain Distin's disallowed goal.
