Carragher: No chance of Liverpool title this season

Jamie Carragher accepts the best chance of Liverpool silverware this campaign is in the cup competitions. The Reds slipped to their lowest Barclays Premier League finish - seventh - for a decade last season - and have too much ground to make up on Chelsea and Manchester United.

A championship title, which Carragher has never won in his 14-year professional career at Anfield, will probably have to wait.

"People have said 'You've done this and that for Liverpool' but we've not won a trophy for four years and that is annoying me a little bit," said the 32-year-old defender.

"I certainly don't want to go on another couple of years not winning one before I finish at Liverpool.

"I don't see any reason why we can't win a trophy this season or the next couple.

"The one I haven't won is the league but I suppose that will be very difficult this season going from seventh last season.

"But I see no reason why we can't have a good go and have a trip to Wembley."

Carragher is confident the fitness of Fernando Torres, who has yet to get through an entire Liverpool season without any injury.

"If you take into account the changes at the club in the sports science department I think up to now we have done quite well at the start of the season with injuries," said the Reds vice-captain.

"We are looking for Fernando to stay as fit as possible but I think David Ngog in the last 12 months is a completely different player, and his start to the season has been fantastic.

"We've also got Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel as well."
