Joe Allen is confident things will soon start to click for Liverpool as they still search for their first win in the Premier League.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw at Sunderland on Saturday despite dominating for long periods of the game.
Summer signing Allen was happy with the showing at the Stadium of Light and believes they are close to getting the rewards their performances deserve.
"It will click," Allen told the Liverpool Echo. "We don't want to start making excuses and putting too much down to luck but there's definitely an element of that at the moment, you can't deny it.
"It seems to take the opposition one chance to get a goal. We keep plugging away and do everything right and it hasn't quite clicked at times. I'm confident it will and we're really looking forward to it happening.
"Sunderland are a tough team to play against, they gave everything and made it as difficult as possible for us to get back into it.
"But having said that, there were enough chances for us to have won the game. We controlled the game and the biggest positive is the spirit we showed after going behind.
"Nine times out of 10, you show spirit and commitment like that and you won't go too far wrong.
"The ability and quality is there."
