He says the fear of falling out of favour under manager Kenny Dalglishâ€™s regime has become a major motivating factor for him and for every other player that has helped Âinspire a seven-game Âunbeaten run.
Adam said: â€śIt is always up to the manager who he picks, but when you come to a club like Liverpool, it is a squad game.
â€śYou know there are 25 players who are internationals, so it is going to be difficult to get in the team.
â€śIt means when you get an opportunity, you have got to take it. Everyone has to show they want to be in the team and I think all the players have tried to do that.
â€śYou only have to look at the names who didnâ€™t start on Saturday (in the 2-0 win at West Brom) â€“ Dirk Kuyt, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Craig ÂBellamy coming off the bench â€“ to get an idea of what it is like.
â€śIf youâ€™re at a big club, thatâ€™s what happens. You need different options. If we can use that to our advantage at different stages of the season, then weâ€™ll look to do that.
â€śWe are on the right track, but we know that if at any time we drop our standards, then we could be dropped too.â€ť
