Shelvey saw action in victory at Fulham last weekend.
"It was nice to get some game time under my belt because I go away with England U21s for a big tournament during the summer, so it was nice to get some minutes and it's always a pleasure to play for Liverpool," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"I was happy with my performance and thought I did well. I was fortunate to get in with the injuries but it was good to play again.
"You've just got to go in each day and prove yourself to the manager. He gave me that chance last Sunday and hopefully I can get another opportunity on Sunday."
