Liverpool's Alberto Moreno has set himself a target of five goals and five assists for the season.

There aren't too many full-backs that would be setting themselves goalscoring targets for the season, but Liverpool's Alberto Moreno is different from the norm. 

Moreno has impressed with his attacking intentions since signing for Liverpool this summer and his offensive threat is summed up from his attitude.

Most full-backs would be keener to set themselves clean-sheet targets, rather than scoring aims, but Moreno is aiming to play a part in 10 goals over the season. 

"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," he told the club's official site

Moreno has been exposed defensively a few times during his initial time in England, but Liverpool fans are still optimistic about his future at the club. 

The 22-year-old's natural enthusiasm for the game has shone through and, given time to adapt, there is a hope he could become one of the best full-backs in England. 

The Spaniard is blessed with bags of pace and his quality going forward has already been on display, with a wonderful goal against Tottenham Hotspur particularly memorable. 

However, despite Moreno's good form, the Reds' defence has looked particularly porous throughout the season so far and Brendan Rodgers will know that he needs to tighten things up if they are to consolidate their position in the top-four.

Moreno, too, admits that he still has a lot to learn defensively, but curbing his natural instincts to go forward will be tough. 

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

"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."

Liverpool's first match after the international break comes against Crystal Palace and they will determined to show that they have made improvements on the training ground during their time away from club football.
