Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge expects his side to challenge for trophies this season as Brendan Rodgers continues to rebuild.
Sturridge – who signed for Liverpool from Chelsea in January – has made a superb start to his Anfield career, notching 11 goals in his 16 appearances so far.
The forward, and Brazilian Philippe Coutinho - both signed in mid-season - helped to transform the club's fortunes towards the end of the last campaign.
And the host of new arrivals at Liverpool – which includes Spanish attacker Iago Aspas, Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure – has Sturridge excited about the new campaign.
"With the philosophy that the manager has, we should be challenging for honours," Sturridge told Liverpool's official magazine.
"I think it's going to be great for us in the future and we can move forward.
"I think we did things last season, both prior to me coming here and then with my help, to deliver some better statistics than we have had in previous years in terms of goals and attacking play.
"It's exciting to be part of that philosophy and the new regime that the manager is forming for us to move forward as a club."
Liverpool have failed to finish in the top five of the Premier League table for the last four seasons and Sturridge believes it is time the club improves and gets back to where they belong, in the top echelons of English football.
"We'll all be doing everything in our power to make sure that Liverpool is a club that is challenging for Premier League titles because the fans have been waiting for that for a long time and hopefully next season we'll be in the running," he said.
"It's the reason why the manager signed me and Philippe Coutinho as well as the players he signed at the start of the season. The aim was to help the team get back to where it belongs.
"When you play in the Premier League, everybody's goal is to lift that trophy, to have the celebrations and to know that you've succeeded and been a champion over everybody else in the division.
"So the main aim for next season and the seasons ahead is to try and help the team do well in the Premier League. I'm sure with the philosophy that the manager has, we'll be able to do that."
