Lucas Leiva hopes to establish himself at Liverpool this season.

"Of course it's going to be difficult but I will be trying my best (to get regular starts)," said Lucas, who started only 12 league matches for the Reds last season.

"We had a good second half of the season but we didn't win the title. Hopefully this year we can win the title and this is our challenge now.

"I think that winning the league is most important because it's been an 18 year wait since we last won it.

"The focus is to win something but the most important thing now is the Premier League."
