Liverpool striker Danny Ings has insisted that he was well aware coming to Anfield that he would need to fight for a first-team spot.
The 23-year-old moved to Merseyside from Burnley on a free transfer during the summer window.
"I come in every day and work hard," Ings told the club's official website. "There's a lot of quality players here who have been brought in for big money, as everyone is aware of.
"I made a huge step coming in from Burnley with all due respect, to Liverpool so for me I knew I had to be a lot more patient than the other strikers that we've got here.
"I'm working hard every day to improve so that when I do get my chances I can take them with both hands and enjoy the moment."
