The 29-year old Swedish striker has managed just three substitute appearances and a Capital One Cup start against Yeovil but is determined to get more regular game time.
"It would be great to start as I played 15 minutes on Saturday and hopefully I will get a chance to start against Liverpool, " he told West Brom's official website.
"It has been a long time since I started a game but I've had one game with the under-21s and I also played at Yeovil in the last round so hopefully I will get another chance against Liverpool.
"I had quite a few defensive duties when I came on Saturday against Reading and the gaffer wanted to close out the game.
"That's part of the job. I didn't really show my attacking side and hopefully I will get a chance to show that tonight.
"The team is doing fantastically and the gaffer cannot change too much at the moment.
"I came here with a lot of rest behind me so I was not really fit, but now I have trained well for a couple of weeks and made a couple of appearances.
"I feel good in training but training is one thing and playing is another. I need more game time."
