Stewart Downing has made it clear he wants to stay at Liverpool.

The midfielder was outstanding in victory over Fulham.

"I want to stay," said Downing. "I never wanted to leave but I was out of the team, I was frustrated and in that situation you have to look at something if it crops up.

"The only thing I can do is play well and make him keep me here. All I am trying to do is make him pick me for the team and stay in the team.

"If I keep playing like I did against Fulham, that will happen."
