Smith is now training regularly with the first team squad.
"It's great to go up there and train," the defender told liverpoolfc.com. "All of the senior lads are so helpful; they help you with every little thing. To be around them every day is just crazy. They are top players.
"You go up there and it's hard to be yourself, but that's what the players help you try to do; the manager and the coaching staff try to help you be calm on the ball, confident and play how you usually play.
"You don't know when [your chance] is going to come. You've just got to keep working hard and trying to please the manager in every training session and game.
"I played a few more games for the U21s and I was doing well. Over Christmas, I went up to Melwood for about two weeks. I first got into the Manchester City squad and then got into the Chelsea squad and was lucky enough to come on."
