David Ngog is looking to build on his good form in 2011 in a bid to help Liverpool salvage their season.
The French Under 21 international is top scorer for the Reds this season with eight goals in all competitions.
Roy Hodgson's men will welcome sixth place Bolton Wanderers to Anfield on Saturday with seven points separating the two sides.
Liverpool go into 2011 just three points above the relegation zone, with Ngog keen to do his bit in easing the pressure on his manager.
"I've scored a few goals this season for Liverpool and I'm happy with this but we want to do a lot better as a team in 2011," Ngog told the club's official site.
"I don't set myself any goalscoring targets. When I get the chance to start the game I always do my best for the team and try and score so we can win.
"I want to play and when I get the chance I've got to keep working hard and score goals for this team.
"I think year after year I am improving as a player. I have still a lot of work to do but I will keep trying my best.
"We have had a few indifferent results and we want to change that in the New Year. When a new manager comes in it can take some time to get it right so we have to be patient and focus on our job.
"We all hope 2011 is going to be a better year for the team. We can't promise anything but I'm sure we will be better and we want to show Liverpool is getting back to their best."
