Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has paid tribute to Raul Meireles for finding his best form in recent weeks.
Meireles has discovered a rich vein of scoring form, hitting four goals in his last five matches as Liverpool have embarked on a four-match winning run.
Dalglish insists he is no tactical wizard in getting the best out of Meireles and insists the Portuguese midfielder is reaping the benefits of his hard work.
"Raul has always had the ability he has shown recently," said Dalglish.
"Maybe he's settled down a little bit and is more comfortable and confident because he is playing well but there's been nothing drastic (tactically) for any of the players really.
"It is fantastic to see Raul doing so well. He has always been a talented footballer, he's always had what we are seeing now but it's been trying to get it out and it is coming out now and he's scoring goals."
Liverpool's best run of the campaign has lifted them to a season's-best sixth place in the table, six points behind Chelsea in fourth.
Despite their good form Dalglish is refusing to get carried away and has played their chances of claiming a top four finish and a place in next season's UEFA Champions League.
"It wasn't a realistic proposition last season so it is only this season we can worry about," he said.
"We've won four games, so that's moving in the right direction and that's what we want to do.
"We've had four results, four shut-outs, but that doesn't earn us anything for the game tomorrow against Wigan.
"We've got to build on what we've done, but that doesn't mean to say that because we've done it (improved their form) we're finished - we want to continue to do what we've been doing.
"It's much more enjoyable to be winning matches than losing them, so that's the thing that will be at the forefront of my mind.
"It's more enjoyable for everyone if we get a result."
