Joe Allen prepared to fight for place

Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen accepts he will have a difficult time breaking back into the starting line-up at Anfield as he prepares to return from injury.

Allen is expected to be named on the bench for the Reds' trip to Newcastle on Saturday, but is realistic about his chances of ousting either Lucas Leiva or Jordan Henderson from the midfield.

The Welshman admitted he struggled for form last season but is hoping to assert his authority once he returns to full fitness.

"There are a couple of slots in midfield where there is a lot of competition for it; my job now is to work as hard as I can to try to get one," he told LFC TV. "When you sign for a club like Liverpool, that's the first thing you realise -- you can't rest on any laurels.

"There are people who will fight for your place inside the club and also outside the club; there are so many people who want to join a massive club like this.

"The team's goal is an obvious one -- Champions League football is what every supporter wants to see this club competing in. That's the goal for the team. For me, the big one is to get into the team and stay there, play consistently well and try to offer as much as I can to help the team get into those top places."

Allen only scored two goals in all competitions last season but believes he can get an edge over his team-mates if he adopts a more attacking role.

"Last year didn't go as well as I'd hoped but there were certain games and moments when I did well and the key is to get that consistently," he added. "Hopefully a year on I'm a year more experienced.

"I think I can get involved more in the creative side in assisting goals. If I had the chance to play further forward goals is something I'd like to add to my game. Back at Swansea I felt it was coming and last season it stopped a little bit and that is something I can offer looking forward."
