Trent Alexander-Arnold is happy to fill in wherever Jurgen Klopp needs him as Liverpool make a late charge for European football.
The Reds host a Tottenham team in disarray on Sunday having recorded three successive wins in the Premier League.
And Alexander-Arnold, who was deployed in midfield in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal earlier this month, is relishing playing his part for Klopp's resurgent side.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, the England defender, 24, said: "We've been scoring goals, that always helps. I've been able to create, it's not just my position that has changed.
"We've gone to a bit of a back three so everyone's roles have changed. Players further forward have to fill in the spaces but it gives us an extra player going forward in the attacking line.
"It wasn't something I was expecting [to change] — I never played that role specifically but I had a free role to roam around.
"I was familiar in receiving the ball in those areas, it's not too dissimilar to things I've done in previous seasons.
"You have good times, you have bad times, you have to roll with the punches.
"We're enjoying it now, winning games and we're getting some momentum.
"It needs to be a freak season and then next season be back in title races — that's our aim."
Tough task ahead
Marc Skinner has warned Manchester United not to take Aston Villa lightly when they bid to go six points clear at the top of the Women's Super League tomorrow.
United host fifth-placed Villa at the Bescot Stadium knowing they can take advantage before nearest rivals Manchester City take on Reading on Sunday.
And with fellow title contenders Arsenal and champions Chelsea not in league action this weekend, Skinner is determined to turn the screw.
He said: "We need to make sure we are on the very best of our game. This is a difficult one to navigate.
"They want to take as many points in this last part of the season as possible — but so do we."
Sweet deal for Toffees ace
Lucy Hope has signed a new two-year deal with Women's Super League side Everton.
The Scotland midfielder, who joined the Toffees in 2019 from Bristol City, has adapted to a new position at right wing-back this season and missed only one league fixture due to injury.
Hope's new contract runs until 2025 and the 26-year-old ace said: "I'm absolutely delighted to extend my stay.
"The way the club and team is going at the minute is such an exciting time to be here and be involved.
"Brian [Sorensen, Everton boss] came up to me quite early this season and was keen to have me stay. As a player that is obviously encouraging.
"To put pen to paper now, I'm just ready to get the next chapter going."
The Toffees return to WSL action at title-chasing Chelsea on May 7.
Everton have confirmed defender Gabby George will be out for the rest of the campaign with a hamstring injury.
George, 26, will not require surgery and should return for the start of pre-season.
Bring on Barca
Magdalena Eriksson has urged Chelsea to be ready for anything when they tackle Barcelona tonight.
The Blues head to the Camp Nou for the second leg of their Women's Champions League semi-final with a 1-0 deficit to overturn.
Eriksson, 29, admits a daunting task lies ahead but she is confident the Blues can turn the tie around.
She said: "Barca have a trademark style of play. They are very smart players, they take what you give them and that's why you have to be on your toes in all areas and ready for anything they throw at us.
"We know their style, we know it’s possession based.
"We know they want to keep the ball, drag us out of areas and exploit those areas.
"For us, it’s about being disciplined, being smart and being ready for anything."
