Olivier Giroud insists he is not worried about his goal tally and is confident he will soon start scoring regularly.

The France international opened his account for the Club in the Capital One Cup victory against Coventry last week, and came close to adding to his tally against Chelsea and Olympiacos.

The 25-year-old insists he is not downhearted by his opening weeks in English football and believes he will soon hit the back of the net on a regular basis.

“I try [to score], I try all I can,” he said. “Sometimes you need to keep the faith, to keep going. When you are a striker, sometimes it’s difficult. I don’t know why, but I do try to do the right thing.

“I think I’m a little unlucky. I’ll keep going and continue to work hard in training. People say to me, ‘the goal is coming soon, don’t worry, we trust you’ and it’s very important for me to feel the support of people and my team-mates.

“We are good team. Although we lost against Chelsea I think it was an accident. We are confident for the future and I am confident. I don’t worry about the future. The goals are coming soon.”
