Liverpool winger Luis Alberto admits he has endured a frustrating start to life in England following his £6.8million move to Merseyside in the summer, but says he is happy to bide his time for the chance to impress in the first-team.

According to the Daily Star, the 21-year-old Spaniard has taken some time to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League, though he remains confident that he can make a positive impact in the top-flight.

The former Sevilla star has been used sparingly by Brendan Rodgers this season, however he's taking confidence from the impressive form of Liverpool team-mate Philippe Coutinho, who has burst onto the scene at Anfield following his arrival from Inter Milan in January.

"I would like to play more, I am waiting for my chances," reflected Alberto. "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."

After spending some time bulking up in the gym, Alberto now feels that he is ready for action, and showed why he is regarded as having a bright future in the game after an impressive hat-trick for Liverpool U21s in September.

"I have been working a few months and I have learned and I am going to wait for my moment," added the Spaniard.

"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."
