Liverpool’s Summer signing from Spain, Iago Aspas, has expressed his disappointment at failing to score in any of the club’s first four league games.
Aspas netted three times in preseason after an early arrival from Celta Vigo, but he has so far failed to make much impact at all in competitive football for his new club.
The 26 year old started the first three league games of the season and was a substitute against Swansea on Monday night during the 2-2 draw.
And the Spaniard has admitted that he is not happy with his lack of goals so far this season.
“Over the last four or five seasons I haven’t gone as many games as this without a goal,” Aspas told the club’s official website.
“I’ve never been an out-and-out goalscorer but it’s true that over the last three seasons I have scored quite a number of goals.
“I suppose on a personal level I’m not entirely happy as I would want to be because I still feel I can do better.
“I’m working hard every day to improve and to be able to show that on the pitch to my team-mates.”
Aspas could be set to return to the starting eleven tomorrow against Southampton as Philippe Coutinho has been ruled out for at least a month after a nasty challenge by Swansea’s Ashley Williams on Monday evening.
The Spaniard is looking forward to a successful season for the Reds.
“What I have done is aimed at playing as many games as possible and to try and help the team to get into the top four, which I think is the most important thing for us,” he added.
“It’s all about focusing on the group as a whole in order to qualify for the Champions League.”
