Luis Alberto is ready to fight to consolidate his place in the Liverpool first team.

Liverpool forward Luis Alberto has insisted that he is ready to fight for his place in the first team.

The 21-year-old joined the Reds from Sevilla in the summer but has made just five appearances in the Premier League so far this season.

"I would like to play more, I am waiting for my chances," talkSPORT quotes him as saying. "The truth is I need to play more and I hope to do it.

"I want to play but there are many colleagues that are working well. I have to wait for the manager to start having confidence in me and [then] repay his confidence on the pitch. I have been working a few months and I have learned and I am going to wait for my moment.

"I have discovered it is faster football, more physical, and you have to be in better physical condition. I have improved in many aspects: my physique is better and I am heavier now - these details contribute to better preparation."

Alberto played for Barcelona B on loan from Sevilla last summer.
