The 24-year-old striker has netted one goal for the Reds since completing a £16m move to Merseyside from AC Milan in August.
I see they appreciate that I am working hard
And although the Italy international accepts that he needs to improve his goal-return, the forward is feeling settled at his new club.
“I can see already that the Liverpool fans really like me, although I know that maybe they are a little upset because I don’t score,” Balotelli told Sport magazine.
“I see they appreciate that I am working hard, though, which is nice for me.
“I know I have one goal in the Champions League, but in the Premier League I have to start with one. After that, I might set myself a target, but I swear – right now my first league goal is my first and only objective.
“I need to get in the box more. I don’t do it enough, but it is something I am working to try to do more. I have never been a real, out-and-out striker – I have always been someone who goes around the pitch, you know?
“If it was my choice, I would always go with two strikers. It’s the way I like to play, but Brendan [Rodgers] asked me to play as the first striker.
“I understand that when the ball comes from wide on the left or right, I need to be in the box otherwise there might be no-one there at all.”
