Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is confident the Reds have what it takes to compete at the top of the Barclays Premier League table next season.

The 24-year-old Uruguayan international has challenged his teammates to replicate the form shown under Kenny Dalglish in the second half of last season, for the entire campaign next year, as they bid to push the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all the way in the race for the title.

"I think the form we have shown over the second half of the season bodes well," said Suarez.

"We've been playing well and I think we've been getting into the type of form that we know we'll have to keep up for a whole season if we want to be title contenders."

Liverpool's form since the January arrival of Dalglish saw them surge up the table to secure a sixth place finish – something that didn't seem possible at Christmas with the Anfield club languishing in mid-table.


The £56million double swoop for Suarez and strike partner Andy Carroll has been further complimented with the recent capture of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland.

And with Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group set to continue strengthening the playing squad, the future at Anfield looks exciting as the Reds look to re-establish their place at the top of the tree in pursuit of their 19th domestic title next season.

"This is something we're optimistic about for next season," Suarez continued.

"If we can hit the ground running and maintain the good form then I think we've got a good chance of doing well."
