Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has been putting in the hours with Luis Suarez to help end his goal drought following his summer move from Roma.

The 21 year old's most recent failure came against Sunderland on Saturday, but the Italian has not been put off by his uncertain start to his Reds career.

Borini has stayed behind after training to get some extra shooting practise in, while also consulting with striker partner Suarez, who scored his second of the season against the Black Cats at the weekend.

"I'm working really hard on the training ground on my physical condition, technical side and tactical as well, with the manager and the assistant manager after training, with Luis and all the other players," Borini said.

Having been used through the middle during the early part of his career, Borini has been forced to adopt a right-sided role for Liverpool, with Suarez spearheading the attack.

After failing to make an impact against West Bromwich Albion, Manchester City and Arsenal, a number of chances came Borini's way on Saturday, with goalkeeper Simon Mignolet equal to his best effort in the first half.

But the Liverpool new boy is not downbeat about his luck in front of goal, and is confident the goals will come.

"It's just probably a moment or a matter of inches or luck," Borini added. "But I think we have qualities to convert the chances, we see in training and we work every day on shooting. It will come.

"I know they will come because as a striker you always get chances in a game. It's probably just a moment that you get unlucky or the keeper makes saves. It's just a moment."

"I've played lots of games and I've been involved in all of them. It's great for me because I can get more experience than I played last year.

"I can get more experience in any kind of football - English Premier League and European football - which is very good for me. I didn't have pre-season training, it was hard at the beginning but now I feel a lot better."

"My favourite position and my natural position, as I've said in the past, is up front, because I played there every time in my career.

"But if to help the team I need to play left or right, midfield or even in goal, it's not a problem because to help the team I will do anything. That's the way it is, and all the players have to do that."

The former Swansea City and Chelsea forward will have the ideal opportunity to kick start his Liverpool tenure against Manchester United, the first game at Anfield since the club's supporters were exonerated from blame for the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 which saw 98 fans die.
