Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt believes there's a big group of title challengers this season.

The Reds face a critical test at Arsenal.

Kuyt told "There is a big group (of title hopefuls) at the moment and Arsenal will always be there. They've just sold one of their best players (Cesc Fabregas), but we had a particular situation when Fernando Torres left the club and we got two great players back.

"I don't like to look too much at the other opponent, but I think Arsenal will be right up there this season together with United and Chelsea.

"Manchester City and Spurs will be there, so it is up to ourselves to get good results, play well and be there, and I have got great confidence we can do that."
