Robin van Persie wants to play in every game for Manchester United including Monday night's FA Cup clash with Reading.
The Dutchman has been a revelation since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer and United are bang on course to win back the Premier League title thanks in part to his performances and goals.
The Reds are also well placed in the Champions League following the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in midweek and with so many key games on the horizon, it has been suggested that Van Persie and one or two other key players could be rested against the Royals.
However the striker hopes that is not the case and he is keen to play in every game possible.
"I have found out that when you play for Manchester United, every game is a big game," he said.
"There are some extra-special matches - like when you play City or Liverpool in the Premier League and Real Madrid in the Champions League - but the so-called smaller games are important also because winning those games makes you champions.
"Personally, I love to play all of the games. You get into a rhythm. I get used to having a game every three days and when you don't play for a week, it can take maybe 10 or 15 minutes to get your rhythm back.
"I want to play against Reading. I want to keep going, playing all of the games."
