Daniel Agger believes the Liverpool squad must take collective responsibility for scoring goals - but insists he remains optimistic about what can be achieved this season.

The Reds have found the back of the net twice in their three Barclays Premier League fixtures so far, however the Denmark defender is confident they will soon start turning chances created into goals scored.

Agger said: "You could see against Arsenal that it wasn't only one player. It wasn't two players, it was three, four, five, six players who had chances, including myself.

"The chances are there and that's the most important thing. But we all need to start taking them.

"I'm still upbeat about the quality in the group. Everybody has to believe in it, otherwise they shouldn't be at a club like this."

Sunday's 2-0 defeat against Arsenal means Liverpool have collected just one point so far this term heading into the international break.

Agger acknowledges the Reds are yet to show their best, but feels the continuation of the hard work they're putting in at Melwood will soon begin to pay dividends.

"Overall we didn't play well enough," he reflected. "We gifted them two easy goals and didn't score any ourselves. You can't win a game if you do that.

"Nothing is easy to fix. Not in football and not in life. But we are working on the manager's ideas every single day, so hopefully we can get better and better during the course of the season."
