Kuyt: New-look Liverpool can win title

Dirk Kuyt is convinced Liverpool will be challenging for the Premiership title this season.

Kuyt told liverpoolfc.tv: "I am really confident we can get off to a really good start this season. We have worked very hard in pre-season and we cannot wait for the start, with the final test for us here in Rotterdam.

"Hopefully we can win the tournament and then start looking forward to the new league season with confidence.

"Every trophy has the same priority, but the league this season will mean a lot for our supporters as it will for the management and players.

"It would be great to win the league title this coming season, but the most important thing is to be there and doing well at the start.

"We must start well and stay involved. We know we have the quality to beat a lot of teams. But in the end you must win your games when you know you can."

And he believes the club's major summer signings will be crucial, saying: "We have signed a lot of quality, some very good new signings and they have already shown their worth.

"We have the quality players, but now is the time to show it on the pitch.

"Fernando Torres has already shown quality in training and the games he has played. He has settled in really well, he is not just talking to the Spanish lads but to everyone else. He has tried to settle in quickly.

"He has the quality to be a success straight away, it will not take him time to settle into the English game. He works so hard and that is important.

"We have Andriy (Voronin) too, he has also worked well and settled, and we now have plenty of options up front. Ryan Babel can also play up front and we have plenty of players who can score and create for others."
