Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is demanding a trophy in the upcoming campaign after their Premier League heartbreak last season.

Liverpool looked set to end their 24-year title drought at the end of the 2013/14 season but narrowly missed out to Manchester City after a disastrous turn of events.

They have since lost star player Luis Suarez to Barcelona but have been busy in the transfer market themselves with six new signings and more on the way.

Rodgers has told his new-look side they must pick up silverware this season for the supporters after coming close in their last attempt.

“I want a trophy this year,” he said. “My sole aim in the first three years was to get us into the Champions League.

“I knew what it meant to the supporters, the city, the taxi drivers, the people, the businesses… so my drive in that period was to get us back. Now we’re in it, I want the club to win the big trophies again.

“That’s what I’ve said to the players. The expectancy this season is continual improvement. Can we go to the next level? We want to win.

“Our priority will be the Premier League but we want to do well in the Champions League too as it’s a big competition.”

Liverpool are priced at 11.00 to win the Premier League in 2014/15 and are on offer at 8.50 to lift the FA Cup.
