Benteke will miss the Capital One Cup tie with Carlisle and is now battling to make the reunion with ex-club Aston Villa this weekend as he awaits the results of assessments into the knock suffered against Norwich last Sunday.
“And if you had seen him every day on the training ground since he arrived here if anybody deserves a goal it’s Danny”.
“His movement was excellent, he took his goal very well and did everything that could have been asked of him”.
Lovren joins Christian Benteke on the treatment table.
However, with Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling at his disposal, Rodgers altered his philosophy to maximise the explosive pace of the trio, which nearly secured Liverpool’s first top-flight title since 1990. “His desire and work rate was phenomenal, he used to close down the whole back four and enjoy doing it”. Instead, Liverpool are doing so to set up for others.
Speaking Of Danny Ings, Liverpool still don’t know how much they will have to pay Burnley for the striker’s services.
“Balotelli and Benteke are completely different players”, Barnes was quoted as saying by The Daily Star .
Sunday’s draw with Norwich was the first time the Northern Irishman started with a three-man defence, Liverpool’s most successful system last season.
The Belgium worldwide, who was withdrawn at half-time against the Canaries due to tightness in his hamstring, has scored two goals for the club.
Rodgers conceded his team had not shown the required quality against United and said it must avoid taking the easy way out by just playing direct passes up to Benteke. “We know we can play better”.
