Saturday's 2-2 draw away to West Bromwich Albion saw Larsson equal his record of one goal in each of the last two Premier League seasons.
Speaking to the Black Cats' official website, the Swede is hopeful that the 2014-15 campaign proves more fruitful for him in front of goal.
"It was nice and it is obviously pleasing personally to get on the scoresheet early on, it is what you want to do and now I want to get a few more than last season," he said.
"My goal is probably one of those where you should finish with your left, but I managed to open up my right foot and slot it in."
