Theo Walcott wants to repay the faith of manager Marco Silva by continuing to produce the type of form that will keep him in the Everton team.
Forward Walcott has started each of the Blues' last four Premier League games as they have recorded wins against West Ham United and Southampton and drawn with Spurs.
The 30-year-old also came off the bench at half-time to help his side book a place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup with a 2-0 victory over Watford last month.
Prior to that run, Walcott's first four appearances of 2019/20 came off the bench before his maiden start, against Manchester City, was cut short when he suffered a concussion just moments after kick off.
The head injury caused him to then sit out Everton's game at Burnley in early October but he has missed just 60 minutes of league action since.
"I'm personally pleased," Walcott told evertontv. "Obviously I've worked very hard to get into the starting line up and I just want to stay there.
"Results have picked up as well which is always a positive when you're in the team, the team is winning and doing well. That's always a nice feeling.
"I missed the Burnley game because of precautions of concussion and, before that, I'd worked so hard to get in the team against Man City and obviously that (the concussion) happens.
"But you can't dwell on it really, you just need to focus on the next day and try to get back and look forward to training again. That's all I could do.
"Then the manager has given me a chance to get back in the team and I thank him for that and hopefully I can just stay there and the team can keep climbing up the table."
Everton will welcome Norwich City to Goodison Park next weekend looking to build on their first away Premier League win of the season at Walcott's former club Southampton prior to the international break.
The visit of the Canaries is followed by a trip to high-flying Leicester City, a Merseyside derby at Anfield and the visit of Frank Lampard's in-form Chelsea.
However, a controversial late defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion is Everton's only loss in five games since Walcott returned to the fold and the former Arsenal man says recent results have given the Blues a solid platform from which to attack the challenging month ahead.
"The win at Southampton was very important for us, obviously," he added. "It was important to get the three points.
"I felt like the performance didn't really matter at times, I felt like we just needed the three points to get us that winning feeling [on the road] again.
"We showed good signs, especially in the first half, but we just need to be a bit more clinical come the final third.
"But I felt like it was a well-deserved three points and we can hopefully build on that."
