Bruce Grobbelaar has is backing Liverpool to win a trophy this season and believes they have what it takes to compete in the Champions League next term.

Brendan Rodgers' men have begun the campaign in blistering form, spurred on by the goalscoring exploits of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, and lie second in the Premier League.

Grobbelaar believes his former club's start can be the platform for a sustained challenge for the top four, and insists they are worthy of a place in Europe's elite club competition again.

“I think we have a great squad with quality players that can take the club to greater heights. I believe we have what it takes to at least win one of the trophies,” the Zimbabwean told Goal.

“We cannot be an average club. When I used to play, the manager would tell us that you are as good as your last performance. That made all the players more hungry to finish strong.

“Anything is possible if we keep our focus and continue to show the work ethic we are showing now. I believe we have what it takes to compete in the Champions League.”
