The Swiss international has scored and assisted twice in eight appearances but he believes Liverpool will put him in position to score more.

Despite a brilliant start to life with Liverpool, Xherdan Shaqiri believes he can become more of a threat in front of goal.

Coming up with two goals and two assists in eight Premier League appearances for the Reds this season – five of those as a substitute – the Swiss international is making a good impression.

While crediting his team, however, Shaqiri insists he will not stop here.

"Of course I'm confident there are more goals to come," he said. "It's always better if you've got better players around you, if you can be more offensive, if you know that you are for sure going to have more possession than the opponent.

"But you also need to be ready to train hard every day. I'm feeling good, I'm fit, and I'm trying to give my best every time I get a chance."

Shaqiri is no stranger to European football's highest levels, winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich before a stint at Inter.

The 27-year-old believes Jurgen Klopp's side play on a similar level to the team he was part of at the Bundesliga giants.

"I played at Bayern Munich with Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben so I knew already what that was like," Shaqiri said.

"It was nothing new. I knew already how good these very talented players were. Because there are different coaches, they play a different type of football but the intensity is the same at Liverpool as it was at Bayern Munich.

"To compare teams is very difficult."
