Brendan Rodgers has hailed Liverpool’s collective ability to score goals after hitting a staggering 96 Premier League strikes this season.

The Reds, who are currently the Premier League leaders and five points clear of Chelsea, have scored more goals than any other team in the top flight.

What’s been really positive for me is the threat we’ve been from different areas throughout the season

And 41-year-old Rodgers, whose side face the Blues at Anfield on Sunday, believes Liverpool pose a threat from all areas of his side.

“That’s the beauty of us with our 96 league goals, it’s about more than one player,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“Luis Suarez is a wonderful talent. He is world-class and has had a great season. Daniel Sturridge has got big potential and I believe he will really flourish here over the next few years.

“But what’s been really positive for me is the threat we’ve been from different areas throughout the season. Other players have improved.

“When you look at the function of the team now, we’ve got players taking on responsibility right across the field.

“It means we’re able to cause teams a lot of problems. Everyone has made a contribution and that’s been vital to the progress we’ve made.”
