Borini, 21, has managed just one goal since arriving at Anfield from Roma in July, with a Europa League goal against Gomel on August 9 his only strike in eight games so far.

The Italy international believes he and his team-mates have suffered from bad luck in front of goal in recent weeks and has vowed to return to scoring ways.

"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 [Suarez] and all the other players," Borini told Liverpool's official website.

"There's not a particular key that can convert the chances into goals. It's just probably a moment or a matter of inches or luck. 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."
