"I'm always trying to improve," he told the club's official website.
"Every single day in training I'll get better and that will give me an edge if I am given some minutes on the pitch for the team.
"I know how difficult it is to play in midfield for a club like Liverpool as we have players like (Steven) Gerrard, (Xabi) Alonso and (Javier) Mascherano - great players.
"However, I think I am a better player than I was last season. I try to play with a high tempo, because I think that is the key to doing well for an English team."
