Emmanuel Riviere vows to wow after breaking duck

Emmanuel Riviere vows that he will kick on and score plenty for Newcastle United in the future after breaking a six-game goal drought during the week.

Newcastle United striker Emmanuel Riviere is hopeful that his brace against Crystal Palace on Wednesday signals the start of a goal-laden career with the Magpies.

The 24-year-old, a £6m summer signing from AS Monaco, scored twice to help Newcastle reach the fourth round of the League Cup with a 3-2 win at Selhurst Park.

Having previously gone six games without finding the net, Riviere believes that Wednesday's performance will prove a watershed moment in his spell in the North-East.

"I'm happy to get my first two goals. I didn't worry about not scoring because in training I have been playing well but the goals just weren't coming," the Frenchman told reporters.

"But I kept believing in myself. I know what I can do. I was waiting for that first goal to come and, now it is here, I know that more will follow.

"I want to play the next game and to keep going like this."
