The last time Liverpool tasted cup success was back in 2012. The Reds, then led by Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish beat Cardiff City 3-2 on penalties to win the Capital One Cup at Wembley Stadium.
It's been over three years since that time, a lot has changed at Anfield but the hunger for domestic and continental success has remained the same.
The Merseyside club will once again be competing for all three titles on the domestic front and despite not achieving Champions League qualification last season the Reds will still be competing in Europe, only this time, it's the Europa League that Brendan Rodgers' side will be looking to make a mark in.

Winning silverware is seen as the perfect way to further develop a youthful squad and if achieved, is someting that can go a long way to boosting a side's confidence on the pitch, whilst attracting top class players off it.
Liverpool will be looking to do just that this season and after finding out who their opponents for the third round of the Capital One cup will be, it was goalkeeper Simon Mignolet who reiterated the importance of a cup win for Liverpool this season.
"That comes with the tradition of the club. I've said it from the start - the ambition here is to try to win every competition we start in", Mignolet told liverpoolfc.com
"That only comes by winning the individual games step by step, so we'll have to get through the third round. The first job in hand is Carlisle at home."
If finishing in the top four and sealing Champions League qualification is the first priority for Liverpool, then bringing silverware back to Anfield should be the second, eitherway Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his side can achieve both and get him his first title as a Liverpool manager.
