Reina says Reds must take more risks

Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina believes the Reds must take more risks in order to lift the Premiership trophy in May and insists the Anfield club must reduce the number of drawn games by turning them into victories.

"People say we have lost as many games this season as we did in the whole of last season. But last season our biggest problem was drawing games," said Reina on the official web site.

"Those draws meant that we could have drawn the two games, went the season unbeaten in the league, but still not won it. I would rather have lost six of those 11 games and won the other five. Then we'd have finished level on points with United and maybe have won it on goal difference.

"People can point to defeats, but I feel it's draws that make it more difficult. One thing that became clear to everyone at the club before this season started was that we must take more risks if we want to win the league. Even if it means losing a few more games, particularly at home.

"In the short-term that may disappoint a few people but in the long term, it's better to cut out the draws.

"In a league where there is three points for a win, for teams trying to win the title, it's definitely draws that make it more difficult."
