The former Sunderland midfielder completed his move to Anfield on Thursday.
"He can learn the game from Steven Gerrard and improve on areas of his performance: for a start, he needs to score more goals.
"He started last season well, but dipped. It happens when you are a young player and you cannot understand why your form has faded. It could have been the pressure of playing so many games, or being the local boy in a struggling side. He finished the season strongly, when his team were in danger and that is a sign of his quality."
