Cape Town - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he is not worried about the team's lack of cutting edge following their 1-0 Europa League win over Augsburg on Thursday.

The Reds booked their spot in the last-16 thanks to a James Milner penalty, the only goal scored over the two legs of the last-32 tie.

Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson both missed great chances to put the tie to bed, but Klopp is not overly concerned.

"We keep [the goals] for [Sunday's League Cup] final [against Manchester City]. It was a good preparation for the final - we know the way to goal," he said after the game.

"[Sunday] is obviously a completely different game but I'm not frustrated. Football is like this, you have to create chances and we have the quality to score goals, everyone can see this.

"They had brilliant goalkeeping and that amount of luck you need and that's it. We could have done better but that's all.

"We had six or seven good chances and that's enough, in another game we will score goals for sure."
