Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has revealed he expects to score at least five goals and make five assists in his debut campaign at the Premier League.

The Spanish international defender completed his move to Merseyside this summer for around £12m after an impressive season with Sevilla, scoring three goals in 29 La Liga appearances.

Moreno has since established himself in Brendan Rodger's line-up, starting all but one of Liverpool's Premier League games since his debut against Manchester City.

The defender has also scored a fantastic solo goal during the 3-0 victory over Tottenham earlier in the season while grabbing an assist in the Champions League 2-1 victory over Ludogorets at Anfield.

But the Spaniard says the best is yet to come and claims that having started his career as a winger, he is targeting to score five goals and five assists this season.

"When I was a kid I played more as a winger or a wide attacking midfielder - not as a full-back. But I always like to score goals and above all, provide assists, which is what an attacking full-back has to do," Moreno said to Liverpool official website.

"As we stand, I'm on one goal and an assist in 12 games, so I think I'm aiming at getting more than five goals and five assists,"

"All players love to score goals, especially me, because when I was younger I used to score regularly as I played further forward back then," Moreno told

Having made a couple of errors against City and Newcastle which proved costly for Liverpool, Moreno also plans to improve defensively.

"Maybe defensively [I need to improve]. I'm a very attack-minded full-back," he said.

"I'm also very young and I've still got a lot to learn. Playing with these players, I'm bound to learn and also playing in this highly competitive league I'm going to learn a lot also."

Moreno claims that Rodgers wants him to attack but at the same time is aware that as a defender, his main task is to help his back-line to be solid.

"When we are about to go out, he always says to me to get forward and attack as much as I can but to be aware that as a full-back that I have to defend as well," said Moreno.

"The fundamental job of a defender is to defend, but at the first opportunity I should get forward and create problems further up the pitch."
