The 23-year-old defender has been an ever-present in the Reds' starting line-up since Brendan Rodgers signed him from Paris Saint Germain on transfer deadline day.

But the France international believes he still has plenty of room for improvement as he looks to help consolidate Liverpool's position in the Premier League top four.

"I'm not yet at 100 per cent, I'm progressing with each match that we have," Sakho told the Liverpool Echo.

"I work every day at training sessions to progress and to achieve the highest level. It's logical that I would improve.

"When you arrive in a country you don't know, you have to learn quickly about the differences in the game and have to get on and adapt yourself to the qualities of your team-mates."

Sakho's encouraging early-season form prompted France manager Didier Deschamps to recall the defender for their recent friendly against Australia, in which he featured as a second-half substitute.

"Certainly it has made me happy to get my place back in the national team," Sakho added.

"I have to reach my own goals and I do everything to achieve those goals. I work every day and I'm super proud to be back with the national team that I'm a member of.

"One of the big goals for any player is to represent their country as well. I want to represent my country with pride, as all players would."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
