As long as he does his best and works hard I’ll have no complaints with that

Brendan Rodgers

The 27-year-old has netted an impressive 23 Premier League goals in 19 games this season but has failed to find the net against Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester City – the three sides above Rodgers’ men in in the table.

And Rodgers is fully expecting the English top flight’s leading scorer to play a key role against the Gunners at Anfield.

“I think he has made an impact – he may just not have scored but he certainly scored in those games last season,” said Rodgers.

“He makes a great contribution to the team but the onus is not always on Luis to score the goals, it is the team.

“As long as he does his best and works hard I’ll have no complaints with that.”
