Aspas, who joined Liverpool from Celta Vigo in the summer in a £7million deal, has lost his place in Brendan Rodgers' side after starting the season in the first XI.

The 26-year-old has yet to score in six appearances for Liverpool and he admits he is finding it difficult not playing on a regular basis.

Aspas is confident he can force his way back into Rodgers' starting XI and in the process try and win a place in the Spain squad.

"I'm finding it hard to be a sub at Liverpool having started games in the past few years," Aspas told Marca.

"When I left Celta Vigo I was aware that to start for Liverpool wasn't going to be easy. And now the team is winning and we are among the leaders in the Premier League, it's very hard to get a game.

"I hope to carry on working hard and little by little to get more game time with Liverpool. I want to change the current situation.

"Now it's difficult to get in the Spain team because I'm playing less but I'm not worried about that. However, I will try to get in the squad."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
