Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino thinks that Liverpool can win the Premier League title this season and has urged his teammates not to fail.
Liverpool had a fantastic season last year, playing some of the best football in the Premier League, as well as reaching the Champions League final, with Firmino finding the net an impressive 27 times.
Despite all the plaudits, Jurgen Klopp’s side would finish in fourth in the league, and finish the season without a trophy, extending their silverware drought to 10 years.
However, with Liverpool having spent the best part of £200 million this summer, the Brazilian striker believes that the Reds are in a good place to challenge for their first league title in 30 years.
“I am optimistic and I believe Liverpool are capable of fighting for the greatest success this season,” Firmino told the Mirror.
“I also think we have a better team than last season and that the new players will improve the performance of the team.
“Of course, we know we have to show it on the field and we know that, for our new players, it is not easy to adapt quickly to a new team. But I always think positively.
“We have shown in the last campaign that our dreams can be fulfilled and that we can return to the path of winning titles. This year, we must not fail and that is the attitude of the players.
“Certainly, my dream is to lift the Premier League trophy with Liverpool – and that’s what we are trying to do.”
Liverpool got their Premier League campaign underway with a resounding 4-0 win against West Ham last week, and hope to continue their good start when they visit Crystal Palace on Monday night.
