Gylfi Sigurdsson wants to use the 'lift' of his recent goals to stay in the Tottenham side this season and then keep on scoring.
The 23-year-old Icelandic international was lured to White Hart Lane last summer when he snubbed the opportunity to link up with former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool to move to north London.
However Sigurdsson has struggled to rediscover the form which saw him score eight goals for the Swans last term while at Spurs and resulted in him slipping out of the side.
But boss Andre Villas-Boas has thrown him back into the mix of late and he has responded with two goals in his last three outings - against West Ham and Inter Milan - to ensure he has stayed in the manager's plans.
And, ahead of facing the Liverpool side he rejected at Anfield on Sunday, Sigurdsson claims his confidence has been lifted by his goals as he looks to make sure they are not a flash in the pan.
"It's important for every player to get a run in the team," said Sigurdsson.
"You see Gareth [Bale] now, he's got a lot of confidence and he's scoring every game.
"I know he's got an unbelievable amount of talent, but it's different when you've got confidence; you can do those things you wouldn't do without it. It's really important.
"I think (the Inter game) was my best game for Spurs. It is good to get two starts in a row and these are the games you want to play in.
"It was really important to get my first league goal (against West Ham). Now I've got my second European goal.
"It gave me a bit of a lift and hopefully we can continue that run and build on it."
