The Saints have netted just three times in five Premier League outings to sit seventh on the table and although 1-0 victories are fine, the Argentine is eager to hit the back of the net with more regularity.
"My philosophy is always to score - the more goals, the better," he told the club's official website. "That's what the fans want to see and that's what I want to see as the manager as well.
"However, at the beginning of the season, it's very important to have a solid start and actually get wins. If they come as 1-0 victories, then so be it.
"There's always collective work happening in the background. We have been working on not conceding, and we're reaped the benefit of that good work.
"I'm confident that we have the necessary quality up front to actually score more goals in the future."
