The 24-year old returned from loan spells with Queens Park Rangers and West Bromwich Albion to help the Latics to one of their biggest wins of the season at DW Stadium and now hopes he can figure more prominently in Roberto Martinez's plans.
"Now, working hard, I've got my chance and I did reasonably well against Arsenal," he said.
"I've played one game so I can't get ahead of myself, but I'll go into training and do what I've been doing all season and we'll see what happens.
"Obviously, I've not played as often as I've wanted for this team this year.
"But that's the gaffer's choice at the end of the day, he makes the decisions and I've been out of line a couple of times."
