Brendan Rodgers side have begun their Premier league campaign with three succesive 1-0 victories.

The last game was a vital win against fierce rivals Manchester United at Anfield. These three crucial victories so early on into the season have put Brendan Rodgers side on top of the Premier league.

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure is optimistic that with the teams unity, belief and determination that they could be real contenders in all competitions this season.

"With team spirit, you can win anything," he told the club's official website. "Individuals are very important, but team spirit is the key - it is the most important thing.

The former Manchester City player went on to say,

"Individuals can win you one game, but to win trophies or be champions it is [down to] a group of players.

"If you want to be successful, you need to work as a team. That is really, really important because we are a group of players and we have the same target - to win trophies and do as well as we can.

The 32 year-old Ivory Coast International missed Liverpool's 1-0 win over Manchester United due to injury but expressed the need for all the team on the pitch, sub bench or sidelines to get behind one another.

"When you don't play, you need to support the team and your teammates need to feel that you are behind them fully." Toure concluded.

Liverpool's next game will be a Monday night clash with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. The reds have been given a boost ahead of the game as in-form striker Daniel Sturridge could be fit to play following an injury that saw the 24 year-old forward miss two of England's World Cup qualifying games.
