Liverpool defender Martin Kelly says there is more to come from them after their 4-1 win over Portsmouth.

Kelly, 19, came on as a substitute to make his Premier League debut.

"We've showed it against Portsmouth that we have got good performances in us and there is a lot more to come," Kelly said.

"It has been tough but you get that in football. We've pulled through it together and we've just kept working hard in training."

He added: "It's getting towards the end of the season now but we just take it one game at a time. So we'll concentrate on the next one which is Lille on Thursday."

The full-back from Whiston, made his first competitive start against Lyon in the Champions League in October.

But he was delighted to get his Premier League bow after recovering a groin injury.

"I've enjoyed it, it's been a long time coming," Kelly said.

"I enjoyed it to come on and it was a special moment for me.

"I think if the manager gives you a chance, you've got to play as well as you can and you can't look out of place or the next thing you know you're chance has gone. You've got to take you're chances."
