His latest showing against Huesca justified Santiago Solari's confidence in him.
"If a few months ago you'd said to me that I was going to play four games in a row, I wouldn't have believed it," he said after the game.
"I was in a difficult position, I wasn't expecting to play against Roma but you've got to take advantage of your opportunities.
"We all want to play and I've always said that I want to be successful here so I'm going to fight for my place - and make the boss realise that he can count on me.
"At Christmas I'll talk to the club to decide what's best for me."
