Alberto Aquilani was relieved to have finally made his home debut for Liverpool in the Boxing Day win over Wolves.
The Italian midfielder is now fully fit after suffering with an ankle injury since joining the Reds in the summer.
"I really enjoyed the game as it was important for me," he said. "I want to improve my fitness.
"It was so different to anything I have experienced, as it was so quick and you never really had much time. The football we played was so fast.
"The most important thing, however, was that we won. We need to improve our confidence and we need to keep winning games to move up the table.
"It is crucial to take things step by step, but our aim is now to win three, four and five games in a row. If we can do that, we will see where that takes us.
"Now we have to face Aston Villa and it is a very important game for our season, but we are feeling good and it is important that we try to win.
"Like I have said before, every game is like a cup final for us."
