Quotes of the week

The Reds winger has caught the eye at the beginning of the Premier League campaign and has proved a versatile asset for manager Rafa Benitez.

Liverpool currently top the Premier League and Pennant appears to have finally settled at Anfield after a £6.7million move from Birmingham in 2006.

"I am probably playing the best football of my career at the moment," Pennant told Liverpool's official website.

"The team are playing well, we're scoring goals, winning games and I think we're all enjoying our football.

"I think my attacking play has been good but I'm also working hard all the time on the defensive side of my game and that's getting better all the time.

More to come

"I finished last season well and my aim over the summer was to make sure I started this campaign in the same way.

"I still have work to do though. Although I'm happy with my form at the moment I know there is more to come. For a start, I could score more goals.

"That's a part of my game which I'm definitely capable of improving on and I'll be looking to get on the scoresheet more often as the season goes on."

Pennant has also reiterated his disappointment at missing out on Steve McClaren's England squad for the current Euro 2008 qualifiers, but the 23-year-old insists Liverpool take priority over his country.

"Of course I want to play for England," Pennant added. "It's everyone's dream to play for their country and I'm no different.

"All I can do is keep working hard for Liverpool and see what happens. Liverpool is my priority. If it came down to a choice of winning the league with Liverpool or playing for England then there's only one winner there."
