Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted that he needs to be more prolific in front of goal.

Suarez has earned plaudits for his build-up play, but often fails to convert the chances that he carves out.

However, despite acknowledging that it is his duty to score and create goals, he doesn't think that his Liverpool statistics can be compared to his prolific goalscoring record at Ajax.

"As a striker, you always want to be scoring goals or making assists, and helping the team however you can. I know myself that I can still up my game that little bit and maybe enjoy a little bit more luck in front of goal, because it's a striker's job to score goals," said the 25-year-old.

"I don't think that you can compare my goalscoring record at Ajax with here. Firstly, because the Premier League is a very tough league to play in and, secondly, at Ajax I went through a period where the goals were flying in from wherever I shot. I'd get rebounds going in off my shoulder.

"I'm not getting that sort of luck at the moment. Sometimes I'm doing the hard part by getting away from the defender, but then I'm not finishing well. But that's what you work on in training and sometimes there's a bit of luck involved as well, but by practising hard I'm sure that the goals I want to score will come."

Suarez has scored three goals in seven games so far this season and 24 goals in 57 games for the club overall.
