The striker, who played a key role in the 4-0 win over Bolton today, joked that only one player in the squad was capable of playing 70 times a season - Steven Gerrard.

He told the Liverpool Daily Post: "I don't want to go anywhere and unless I am told otherwise I will certainly be at Liverpool in February.

"I haven't started the last two games but did start the two before that. I think I'll be involved and get the right amount of games to be happy. If I perform in those games I'm sure the manager will want to keep me.

"I'd like to play in every game but the manager likes to rest players and select players for each individual match.

"I don't think any player apart from Steven Gerrard can play 70 games a season!"
