Nigerian forward Victor Moses said on Sunday he is hoping his goal against Bournemouth in in the fourth round of the FA Cup would help him get more playing time with Liverpool.

Moses, who made his second start since the first of December, opened the scoring for his side who advanced to the fifth round after securing a 2-0 win over Championship side Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old suffered from lack of playing time at Liverpool, having made only 13 appearances – seven as a substitute – since joining the Reds from Chelsea last summer.

He believes the Saturday's goal will be the first of many at Liverpool.

"It was really important," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Sunday.

 "I know I haven't been myself for the past few weeks but I just want to kick on from here and try to get a few more goals in the second half of the season. It's crucial for me and the club as well.

"It's up to the manager to pick his own players. I just want to keep on working hard in training and hopefully play as many games as I can."
