Nathaniel Clyne was delighted to see Liverpool's hard work on the training field yield a second successive clean sheet of the new Barclays Premier League campaign.
The Reds made it two wins from two for 2015-16 as they defeated newly promoted Bournemouth 1-0 at home on Monday evening.
A maiden Anfield goal for summer signing Christian Benteke ensured he grabbed the headlines but Clyne, who also recently joined the club, was happy to play a part in yet another shut-out.
"There's a lot of work going on, we have to improve on our defensive qualities and we showed today that we can be solid in defence," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"If we can get a clean sheet there's always the possibility of picking up maximum points like we did today so long the may the clean sheets continue!"
The England defender also confidently predicted that Brendan Rodgers' team will soon put on performances that match their promising results.
"It's always good to get three points, I'm sure the performances will improve and get better as the weeks go on," he added.
"It was just important today to get the three points."
And on running out at Liverpool's home ground for the first time since joining the club, Clyne beamed: "It was a nice feeling to come here and play for Liverpool at home, see the Anfield crowd and get three points.
"Hopefully there are many more three points to come."
