"It was unfortunate not to score but apart from that everything has gone so smoothly and I've settled in really quick. There's a lot of good guys at this club and I'm really enjoying my time here," Benayoun told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"It's always hard when you come to a new club and don't really know anyone. Obviously I've played against these players many times but the only one I knew personally was Javier Mascherano and, unfortunately, he was away with Argentina at the Copa America.
"Those first few days can be a bit daunting but everyone has treated me really well and I'd like to thank them for that. I think what also helped was the fact that I wasn't the only new player.
"There were four us and at the start we tended to stick together. Now we know everyone very well and have more confidence. I feel like I have been at the club for a very, very, long time already."
