Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com: "Last season we had that chance [to begin the campaign by lifting a trophy] as well but this feels a bit different this time - you know, we're there on merit this time.
"Last year we were there because Man City won every trophy going and we'd finished second to them. This year we're there as champions, Arsenal are obviously there as FA Cup winners. Obviously we fell short last season but we want to start the season right and we want to try to win the trophy that we didn't get last year and that will be our aim.
"Since the day we came back we've been preparing towards that and hopefully we've done enough in a short space of time to get fit enough, to get the feeling back and hopefully we can do enough to get the job done and get our hands on that trophy.
"We want to get the season off to a good start and the only way of doing that is getting our hands on the trophy."
