Liverpool must be more clinical at Tottenham says Benitez

Reds boss Rafa Benitez is demanding his side be more clinical in front of goal. The Reds visit White Hart lane tomorrow to launch their Premiership game, but Benitez is mindful of last season fixture with the Reds dominating the game but ultimately loosing the match:

“I remember the game at Tottenham very well and it was maybe one of our best away performances last season,” he said in the Echo.

“We lost but the face of Harry Redknapp at the end of the game said it all for me.

“It was a pity because it was a very good game, but you must learn from matches like this.

“When you have chances you have to finish teams off.

“Maybe if there is something we can improve on this season it is to be more clinical.”

Andrea Dossena has been linked with a move back to Italy, but for the time being he is still a Liverpool player and Benitez insists having two players competing for the same position can only be positive for the team.

“Both Dossena and Insua are competing hard for the position and that’s good for us,” Benitez added.

“We had some clubs asking about Dossena but at the moment he’s still with us and he’s our player.

“He has trained really well and we are really pleased with him.”

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres yesterday put pen to paper keeping him at the club until 2013 and Benitez is clearly delighted one of the best forward in the world has committed to the club.

“Every major side would want him in their team, but he has shown how much he wants to achieve success at Liverpool by committing his future to the club.

“He’s a special talent, but still has the hunger to improve his game.”
