"I have to keep working hard if I want to stay in the team, there are so many good players at Liverpool, particularly in the position that I play, that if I was to stop working and doing the right things to improve, I'm sure I would lose my place." he told the clubs official website.
"I think the manager trusts me and has confidence in me though and I am just trying to keep on working hard and learning."
"We have a lot of good midfielders at Liverpool and I am learning a lot from them, I think Steven (Gerrard) is one of the best players in the world, so I watch him a lot to see the way he plays and the movements he makes." he added.
