Jovanovic: My best is yet to come for Liverpool

Liverpool new-boy Milan Jovanovic insists he has far more to offer the team than he has shown so far and has vowed to prove his worth at Anfield.

The Reds are still finding their feet under Roy Hodgson and following Sunday's goalless draw at Birmingham, currently find themselves in the wrong half of the Premier League table.

Star man Fernando Torres is coming under scrutiny for his lacklustre displays but Jovanovic accepts others must make a bigger contribution too.

The 29-year-old Serbian international is yet to score since his summer move from Standard Liege. But he insists it is a situation he does not expect to continue for much longer.

"I was happy with how I played against Birmingham but I know I can do better,'' the striker told the Liverpool Echo. "I am disciplined and trying to build an understanding with the other players.

"I am not in the best form and I can play better than I have shown so far. But I know I can score goals and make assists for this team. I am sure I can.''

Hodgson has already pleaded for patience as he tries to galvanise a side that had slipped to seventh by the end of Rafael Benitez's final season in charge.

Jovanovic shares the sentiments and ahead of Thursday's Europa League showdown with Steaua Bucharest, he is convinced life will soon start getting better for the Anfield giants.

"It is going to take time because there are a lot of new players,'' he said. "But if we keep getting the ball to Stevie (Gerrard), we will be much better.

"I have no doubts that we will climb the table. The Premier League is tough but we are Liverpool. That is what matters.''
