Liverpool's promising defender Martin Kelly is hoping his form ensures he stays in Kenny Dalglish's starting XI.
The England Under-21 international has started all three of Dalglish's games in charge after primarily featuring in Europa League action under former boss Roy Hodgson.
Kelly has enjoyed being given an extended first-team run and despite the games coming thick and fast the 20-year-old is determined to retain his place.
"I'm made up with my own form," explained Kelly. "Hopefully I'll keep training well and get a chance to play.
"It's the first time I've played three games in a week and it is pretty tough on you mentally as well as physically but it is all a learning curve.
"In the Premier League, Europa League and Champions League you need to play three times a week so it's really good to do that."
Kelly also feels that despite being in the job for only a week and having just three proper training sessions, Dalglish had made his influence felt.
"The team is coming together a lot more," he added.
"We are all enjoying training and there have been some feisty challenges - it's good to have that in training.
"I think we are all working together as a team. He (Dalglish) has put points in place how he wants us to play."
