Jose Enrique has vowed to boost his goal output for Liverpool and help to ease the pressure on the club's strikers.
The Spanish left-back arrived at the club from Newcastle this summer and has been one of Kenny Dalglish's most consistent performers this term.
Enrique's only goal in English football game against Nottingham Forest in March 2010 while playing in the Championship for the Magpies.
He was denied an opportunity to double his goal tally against West Brom on Saturday, when Ben Foster made a fine stop to thwart him, but Enrique is determined to break his duck for Liverpool.
"Of course I want to score goals - I have never scored in the Premier League," he told the club's official website.
"I have to score some goals, but what's important is we beat them (West Brom) 2-0. The team is the most important thing.
"If we're winning 3-0 and I get the fourth goal then I will be really happy but it will be just another goal (for the team). However, if it is a goal to win a game then that will be more important for me."
Enrique's form has seen him lauded as arguably Dalglish's best summer signing after making the troublesome left-back spot his own.
However, he is refusing to rest on his laurels and is convinced there is more to come from him.
"At the moment I am happy (with my form). It is easy to play with the players I am training with every day. We have a good team," he added.
"When I arrived at Newcastle it was my first year in England and it was very difficult for me.
"But this is my fifth year in England and I have played more football here than I did in Spain. I am really, really happy to be here and to play for a team like Liverpool is really nice."
