Mario Balotelli: Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool striker must improve

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praises Mario Balotelli's work ethic but says the striker "must improve" in front of goal.

The Italian has scored one goal in his first seven appearances for the Reds.

Liverpool face West Brom on Saturday in the Premier League, hoping to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Basel in the Champions League.

Rodgers hopes his side can return to playing as a team, adding: "When confidence is low, it can become about the individual but we have to get back to being a team."
