The South African midfielder is beginning to again form a dangerous left-sided partnership with Leighton Baines but says there is still a little way to go as he returns to full fitness after missing the beginning of the campaign with injury.
"The way we combine sometimes, it's about split-second decision making, it's the timing," he told the Liverpool Echo after Sunday's 0-0 draw with Tottenham.
"It's coming back, but I'm still getting into the rhythm of it.
"It's only my third game back from eight weeks off so it's taking a while.
"I was happy to get the 96 minutes against Spurs and my fitness is getting much better. It will take a while but I'm getting there."
