'It's nice to be involved' - Shaqiri delighted to play role in Liverpool win against West Ham


Xherdan Shaqiri Liverpool 2020

Xherdan Shaqiri was delighted to make his first Premier League appearance of the season for Liverpool as he set up the winning goal against West Ham on Saturday.

Although he played the full 90 minutes in the Reds' Champions League victory against Midtjylland in midweek, Shaqiri has been reduced to a limited role for Jurgen Klopp's men and he was happy to be back in the team against the Hammers.

“It’s always nice to be involved.Obviously I was injured a few times and it was always the hard way for me until now," he told the club's official website.

"I’m very happy that I’ve got my minutes back, I’ve tried to stay fit and I hope it stays like this.”

He continued: “It was unbelievable. Of course, the subs always try to change the game and try to decide the games.

“And, of course, I’m a player and Diogo is also a player who can decide games and we needed that, so it was perfect.

“We both played a part in the second goal. It was a nice one and an important one, so we are very happy the three points stay here at Anfield.”

David Moyes' side gave the reigning Premier League champions a hard time at Anfield and the Switzerland international was relieved to get the three points.

“It was a tough game. We knew that West Ham would come here with a lot of confidence because they had good results against big teams in the past games," he said.

“We saw that in the beginning and they went in front early but we kept going and played our game until the end. The football we played, we tried and at the end of the day it’s important to win the game and we did that.
