Striker Luis Suarez is hoping to end his first full season at Liverpool with a domestic cup, after admitting the Barclays Premier League title may be out of reach.

The Reds lie fifth in the league after seven games, and are already six points behind Manchester United and Manchester City, who are neck and neck at the top.

Suarez, who moved from Ajax in the January transfer window, is keen to end his first full season at Anfield with a trophy, and feels cup success will do just nicely for Kenny Dalglish's men.

“We have no limit and want to stay in the top four,” said Suarez.

“But winning the Premier League is now very difficult.


“The main reason why it is so difficult is because the two Manchesters and Chelsea are unreachable. But we can win the cups.”

Such has been Suarez's impact at Liverpool that he's already been mentioned as one of the club's great No.7s, a shirt which has been worn by some of the great Reds legends of yesteryear such as Kevin Keegan, Peter Beardsley and current manager Dalglish.

However, when choosing the number, the Uruguayan admits he didn't realise the significance.

“I didn't know the history of my No.7 shirt at Liverpool,” he said. “I picked it because it was one of the few numbers available.

“Now that I know the story I am proud to wear the ‘7’ and I try not to feel the burden of its heritage.”
