Suarez admits to wasted opportunities

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has admitted he must work on his finishing abilities to become one of the Premier League‘s great players.

Suarez missed at least four good chances during Liverpool’s opening day defeat away to West Brom last Saturday.

He said, “I am the problem. It is all down to me.

“I need to take my time more when I do have chances.

“Sometimes I am rushing at chances too much and I know the problem is mine. It is up to me to sort it out and to start scoring goals.”

About last Saturday’s performance, Suarez continued, “I am annoyed about Saturday because I did the hardest thing, which was to get free of my marker. And after that I missed the chances. But that is why we have training – to try and tweak these little things and make them better.”

Suarez lines up with Liverpool to face league Champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon looking to bounce back from their defeat last weekend.

And Suarez is hoping luck is more on his side this time round.

“In Holland I scored a lot of lucky goals,” he added. “If you look back on my goals in Holland you will see that, a lot of times, I didn’t even hit them properly but they went in.

“If there is one thing that is missing in this country it is that bit of luck that can make a big difference. I am hoping that it will return and then I will score more goals.”
