Dominik Szoboszlai was a delighted figure after scoring his first goal for Liverpool and picking up all three points in Sunday's 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

The No.8 opened his account for the Reds with a powerful strike in the third minute at Anfield, before a Matty Cash own goal and finish from Mohamed Salah then improved the hosts' lead.

Szoboszlai, a summer arrival from RB Leipzig, was glad to finally get on the scoresheet after finding himself in threatening situations in his previous three appearances for the club.

The midfielder told Liverpoolfc.com: "Really happy to hold the three points at home. Well played, good reactions, I think everybody showed himself again and as a team we did very good.

"I'm really happy to score my first goal at Anfield. I think I couldn't even wish [for] better.

"To be honest, I said it before, we practised sometimes in the training and I think two weeks ago I had two situations after each other [and] I shoot the ball 50 metres over the goal.

"Today I was concentrating even more to hit the ball good and to hit the goal. It worked."

On the Anfield crowd, he added: "We are doing everything for them and also for us.

"But all the time we want the full stadium and if they come then we want to show them it's the reason why they come."

Jürgen Klopp made three changes to his line-up for the encounter, with Darwin Nunez, Joe Gomez and Curtis Jones handed starting berths.

With deadline-day arrival Ryan Gravenberch also watching on, Szoboszlai feels Liverpool are well-stocked with quality and depth in every department.

"We have a really good squad, to be honest," he said. "Joel [Matip] started today really good, played until the end. Joey as well fought all the balls.

"We need these kind of players. We need everybody healthy because if something happens then you need to be ready.

"We should be calm, we should work hard – as we did until now – and everything is going to come."
