Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins is confident he can be a success at St James' Park.
The £10 million signing is still looking for his first goal for Newcastle since his arrival from Internazionale.
Martins has no worries about his goalscoring drought and has promised to prove his worth to the Magpies faithful.
"Maybe I am a slow starter but once I break the jinx I won't stop scoring," Martins told The Sun.
"I want to score goals because that is what I'm paid to do.
"The fans are looking forward to seeing their striker scoring, I promise them I'm working towards it - and despite the robust defences I will still score great goals here.
"The Italians are masters of defensive football. I scored in Italy, so I'll score in the Premiership too."
The Nigerian endured a difficult debut for Newcastle when picking up a leg injury in the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa and he is ready put it behind him.
"Losing on your debut is bad - getting injured in the same match is worse. But I've decided to push that behind me and move on," added Martins.
Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder believes he has nothing to prove as he prepares to make his first return to West Ham.
Roeder spent two years in charge of West Ham, but he was sacked in 2003 after the club suffered relegation.
Roeder is not worried about any hostile reception he might receive on his return to Upton Park and says he is not bitter about his exit.
"It doesn't bother me. As I found out at the end of managing West Ham, life can potentially be very short whatever the reception," said Roeder.
"On the day, that will be the last thing on my mind. It is not about my reception. My team is the major player on the day.
"I don't feel I have anything to prove there. I have kept in touch with a couple of board members there since I left.
"I'm not one of those managers who hopes that his previous club does poorly and I'm delighted the way things have turned out for West Ham."
