Borini unfazed by lack of goals

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini says he is not unhappy with his start to the season and at his new club, despite just the one goal in his first ten appearances.

The 21-year-old Italian scored against FC Gomel in the Europa League in August, but has yet to find the back of the net in a Premier League game for the Reds.

Borini is in line to face some of his fellow countrymen when Serie A side Udinese come to Anfield tonight in the Europa League.

“I’m not finding things difficult as such. In fact, last year, I only scored the one goal by October and all my other goals came after January,” he told press before tonight’s game.

“I’ve already scored for Liverpool in the Europa League and perhaps now it is October, it is time to start scoring in the Premier League as well.

“It’s just a matter of time. It’s not a question of me finding it difficult, getting used to this level or this league. It’s a matter of time before my first league goal comes.

“If you get your positions right and keep getting in them as a striker, goals will come. I have an aim, but I don’t really like to say what my aims or goals are because I like to keep them to myself.”
