Georginio Wijnaldum remains confident that he’ll start scoring more regularly for Liverpool.
Wijnaldum impressed in flashes of his sole season with Newcastle United, netting a squad-high for the relegated side.
Since switching the North East for Liverpool this summer, the midfielder has experienced a change of position and more defensive responsibilities.
Indeed, he is now expected to play a ‘complete’ central midfielder, rather than one focused on supporting a striker.
As such, Wijnaldum has netted just one goal in his 11 Premier League appearances for the Reds, which came in a recent 6-1 win over Watford.
Despite ongoing concerns from a portion of fans and pundits, the Holland international is pleased with the start to his Liverpool career.
Wijnaldum told Sky Sports: “I play in a different position and for the people you are always high-profile when you score goals.
“Now it’s less than I scored last season, but I still have faith that it will come. I’m just happy that I can be part of this team.
“If everyone trains 100% and we all just do our best, that makes us each a better player. Every training exercise we do is like a real game. Everyone has to be 100% and if it’s not 100% you will see.”
Wijnaldum has missed only one Premier League game this season, as he has cemented his status as a key member of Jurgen Klopp’s in-form team.
The Merseyside giants are currently one point adrift of table-toppers Chelsea, but can leapfrog the Blues with a victory over Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.
