Jurgen Klopp admits he is being compelled to reshape a Liverpool attack that have missed some "brutal" chances this season.

The goalless Champions League draw with Real Madrid last Wednesday was the seventh time in nine games at Anfield in which the Reds have failed to score.

While Mohamed Salah has 28 goals this season and summer signing Diogo Jota 12 in 25 appearances, both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have underperformed while Divock Origi has only one goal and Takumi Minamino is on loan at Southampton.

Liverpool can still salvage a difficult campaign by securing Champions League qualification, and will move into the top four by winning at Leeds United on Monday evening.

And asked if the problems in attack will resolve themselves or require a change, Klopp said: "Probably both.

"I think we all agree that with the quality the boys have they will score goals, but in this period where they don’t score you have to think - do you intervene or just let it go? That is the job to do.

"If you would have used the chances you could have had a different game, is kind of what people told me and I said, yes, that is a little bit like how the season was. If we used a lot of the chances we wouldn’t stand here and talk about these things.

"We had more chances than the opponent. But that is normal. We had strange games where we had a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot better, brutal chances and we didn’t win, but you cannot buy anything for that. You just have to accept it.

"That is part of football as well. In other moments you are flying and you cannot explain it really - you think all the balls are flying in the net how is that possible? There is only one real chance - you have to carry on, trust yourselves still, you have to be positive and to go for it."

Klopp opted to leave Jota on the bench in midweek, but could recall the Portuguese to the starting line-up at Elland Road with Firmino or Mane the most likely to drop out.

The Reds boss added: "The difference between missing a chance and using a chance is very often an inch on a football boot so we shouldn't make too big a fuss of it. It is absolutely possible that the next ball is in and (clicks fingers) here we go.

"But we don’t wait for that, we work on it and try and help to bring the boys in the right positions and give them the right solutions.

"Everyone who played football knows there are very lonesome moments on a football pitch, the moment when you stand in front of a goal and you think you are just by yourself there is no one to help you and that is the thing.

"We try and bring in these situations that they don’t have to think too much and just finish them off."

Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also pressing for a start, although Liverpool will once again be without Jordan Henderson, who has been absent since February with a groin problem.

And Klopp admits he still has now idea when the skipper will return to action.

"I don’t know," he said. "He is not in training yet, I think we can say that. All the rest we can see. He looks good that is the good news but not in training yet."
