Raul Meireles has been one of Liverpool’s top performers as the Reds have seen a recent resurgence of form make a top six finish a possibility after a disappointing start to the season.

The Portugal international scored the winner against Chelsea last week to take his tally to four goals in five games.

Meireles was former manager Roy Hodgson's most lavish signing at £11.5million from Porto.

Meireles said: "The fans have been with me from my arrival, but now my goals mean their support for me is bigger.

"I am a hard man but I get very emotional when they sing my name during matches.

"This is unique but I must say that while I am happy with my goals, my objective is not to become Liverpool top scorer.

"I know my limitations but I will always give 150%.

"As a foreigner watching Liverpool on television, I always sensed something about the club but it's only possible to really understand it when you are here.

"To perform at Anfield and score goals is fantastic.

"I am privileged to play for Liverpool and perhaps in time I will think that I have fulfilled the biggest dream of my sporting life."
