Iago Aspas is insistent that Liverpool should be good enough to achieve Champions League football at Anfield next season.

The club are flying high this season and sit second in the Premier League currently, have a clash with local rivals Everton at the weekend.

The striker who was outstanding for the reds in preseason, is currently suffering from a thigh strain, told Liverpoolfc.com: "I think we should be aiming to finish in the top four - I think it is the minimum for this club.

"The squad is very good; you can see that when you consider it player by player.

"My ambition is to play as many times as possible and to try to do it in the best possible way to finish in the top four."

Aspas looks to return to action in a few weeks but will face stiff competition from the pair known as the "SAS" who have bagged a total of 16 goals combined and are joint top scorers along with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

SAS have formed a formidable partnership since Daniel Sturridge joined the club in January, this partnership has continued from where it left off last season as Luis Suarez returned to action after serving his ten match ban.

The club, who have only lost twice in their opening games, hope to continue the form they have shown so far this season, but will need their strikers to be firing on all cylinders if they wish to achieve or better this feat.

There is nothing to stop this club from mounting a sustained title challenge this year but will need to keep their key players including the club legend Steven Gerrard, on form to show how far the revival under Brendan Rodgers has come. 

The side will look to strengthen in January to ensure hopefully, the 5-time European Cup Champions don`t miss out on qualification for Europe`s elite competition for another season.
