Liverpool attacker Minamino admits relief after scoring in Crystal Palace win

Liverpool attacker Takumi Minamino confessed some relief scoring in their 7-0 rout of Crystal Palace last week.

Minamino revealed he felt some pressure about breaking his goal drought.

He told "When Sadio (Mane) passed the ball to me, I sensed that an opponent was coming to block me.

"But from there, I had no time to think, but just trusted my feeling and shot.

"A goal in the Premier League was what I really wanted to achieve.

"Rather than feeling happy about it, I think it took longer than I wished. But I am happy that I could contribute to the team's victory.

“I wouldn't say that I was disappointed with myself, but I always wanted to score as soon as possible. I also felt some pressure about it.

“I am happy that I finally scored, but I have only scored once, so I will work hard to score more."
