New Liverpool Striker Luis Suarez: I won't Panic if The Goals Don't Come

Red's No.7 keen on adding to his debut tally.
New Liverpool signing Luis Suarez is keen to build on his goalscoring debut at Anfield and fire the club into the Champions League but claims he won't panic if the goals dry up.

The 24-year-old, who joined from Ajax for £23.8 million, believes his goal against Stoke last Wednesday eased the pressure off his shoulders, but remains determined to keep on scoring to help propel the club amongst Europe’s elite and add to his tally in Sunday’s clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"It went through my mind after the game against Stoke that now I have scored my first goal the pressure has eased a little," he said to the club’s official website.

"As a striker, you do think about scoring goals but that is not going to worry me now.

"I hope that I can settle in here very quickly both on and off the pitch.

"But I have never been the type of person to let pressures off the field affect my game. As soon as I step out on the park the only thing I concentrate on is the next 90 minutes. It has always been like that for me from an early age.

"It didn't matter whether I was playing for a junior team at ­Nacional in Uruguay or for the national team or Ajax."

The Liverpool No.7 depicts his reason for coming to the club, and hopes to push the club back into the Champions League.

"The reason I chose Liverpool was because this has ­always been a club I have equated with the Champions League.

"I am not suggesting we are ­definitely going to qualify this year, but the expectation is there.

"You can never say what will ­happen in ­football. We know we are a few points behind.

"Chelsea are in fourth place, but our hopes and expectations are that we will be fighting to get a place in the top four.

"All kinds of results can happen in English football, so it gives us hope that it could happen."
