Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has admitted that he is not best pleased with his current form for his new club as he is yet to find the back of the net, the Mirror reports.

The Spaniard joined the Anfield outfit during the summer transfer window from Celta Vigo and has spoken of his disappointment at not being able to find the net yet despite being involved in all four of the club’s opening four games, in which they’ve remained unbeaten.

“I suppose on a personal level, I’m not as entirely happy as I would want to be because I still feel that I can do a lot better,” said Aspas.

“But I’m working hard every day to try and improve and be able show that on the pitch to my teammates.

“It’s not that easy coming here from the Spanish league and I’ve only had a short period to settle in.

“I’ve never been an out-and-out goal scorer, but it’s true that over the last three seasons I have scored quite a number of goals.

“But me being on target isn’t so important as long as the team is winning and stays at the top of the table.

“I think when I do score, it will be a really explosive reaction as over the last four or five seasons I probably haven’t gone as many games as this without a goal.”

The 26-year-old has said that he has not set himself a goals target for the season, but he is focussed on helping the club to regain a place in the Champions League following a lengthy absence.

“I’ve not set myself a goals target,” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “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.

“It’s all about focusing on the group as a whole in order to qualify for the Champions League.”
