Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt believes their performances against the top sides have improved their chances of regaining Champions League football.

Kenny Dalglish's side were unlucky not to end leaders Manchester City's unbeaten start to the Barclays Premier League campaign on Sunday, with the match only finishing 1-1 because of the brilliance of England goalkeeper Joe Hart in the second half.

The result means Liverpool have not lost in the league to either City, Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal since September 2010, and Kuyt thinks that gives an indication of the direction the team is heading, saying: "In my opinion City have so far been the best team in the Premier League so we can take lots of positives from our performance."
