Kevin Keen believes Liverpool are yet to reach their full potential so far this season – but is confident fans will soon be watching exactly what the side are capable of.

The Reds first-team coach feels the squad is still in the process of gelling together after a busy summer that saw no fewer than seven senior signings arrive at Melwood.

"I think we've started reasonably well, but it could have been better," Keen told Liverpoolfc.tv. "Everyone knows the home games we've drawn - we could have picked up a few more points there.

"But it's a long season and I really believe at some stage everything is going to click.

"You have to remember we've got quite a few new players that came in during the summer - and even this year overall if you include the January window.

"Kenny hasn't been back in the job for a year yet and Steve (Clarke) and myself are quite new, so it's all still coming together.

"But I really think as the season goes on, we will gel more and more. I hope the supporters are seeing the kind of football we want to play is starting to come through and that we'll start taking our chances and scoring a few more goals. We'll be fine for the rest of the season."

Liverpool return to action this weekend following the international break by travelling to London to take on Chelsea.

The Reds will return to Stamford Bridge on November 29 for a Carling Cup quarter-final tie.

Keen acknowledges obtaining two positive results away to Andre Villas-Boas's side will be a stern test for Liverpool, but he's confident the Reds have what it takes - particularly if they're clinical in front of goal.

He said: "They've had a little sticky result at home (against Arsenal) and we were disappointed after the Swansea game.

"It's a big game, especially playing them twice in 10 days or so. Going to Stamford Bridge twice is a big ask but I think we can organise ourselves properly and do quite well.

"I think Andre Villas-Boas has brought a little bit more of an attacking slant to his side, so it's going to be a big test but one Kenny, Steve and I are working on.

"I certainly think we will create chances against whichever team we play, as we saw against Manchester United and Arsenal earlier in the season. We will create chances and have an attacking intent about us.

"We've got some really good, exciting attacking players and against whichever team we play, we'll always go and try to score goals. That will be a big part of our game plan on Sunday."
