The 26-year old midfielder has already started more league games this season (12) than he did with former club Tottenham in all of 2012/13 and is loving being a key part of Steve Bruce's Tigers line-up.
"The main thing's probably confidence to be fair," he told Sky Sports after the 3-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday.
"The lads and the manager have shown a lot of faith and trust in me. It's about me repaying that back and hopefully results like this can be more regular than they have been."
The victory, Hull's first over Liverpool in 17 attempts, put the Tigers 10th on the table on 17 points after 13 fixtures.
