The defender has started in victories over Leicester City and Tottenham.
When asked if he now deserved his place in the side, Taylor shot back: "Absolutely. The one thing I've done is waited for my chance and kept myself in good shape.
"I've taken my chance and that's what I had to do - we've got three points in both games.
"One hundred per cent (I intend to stay in the side). I love my football and there's nothing better than playing in front of 52,000 fans, that's where I want to be."
