Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard wants to win the Europa League even though he admits it is not the club's priority this season.
The Reds have been pitted against Steaua Bucharest, Napoli and Utrecht in the group stages and after four years without a trophy Gerrard is keen to bring some silverware back to Anfield and knows Europe represents as good a chance as any.
"It's a strong group and I'm certainly looking forward to the games," he said.
"The media will make us early favourites I'm sure, because of our experience in the Champions League and last year in the Europa League.
"I'm confident we can get out of the group but it will be tough. The draw has given us some difficult challenges.
"I don't think the Europa League is the priority. Everybody knows that our league position, where we finish at the end of this year, is the priority.
"But it's another trophy, it's a big cup.
"We haven't won a trophy for four years now so it's important we put a good show on in all the cup competitions and try to reward the fans with a final."
