Martin Skrtel says Liverpool believe that they are capable of qualifying for the Champions League this season.

The Reds are currently second in the Premier League table after an impressive start to the season, including a recent 4-0 rout of Fulham at Anfield.

Liverpool face Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Saturday, and Skrtel is desperate to see the Reds end their four-year absence from the competition.

“A good start was something we targeted and prepared for,” Skrtel is quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo.

“But the season is very long and we just go from game to game trying to get as many points as possible.

“All of us believe that this season we can stay towards the top positions and get back into Europe. To play in the Champions League is the dream for every player.

“We are working hard every single day to achieve that. I hope at the end of the season we will be happy.

“I have been here at Liverpool for six years and it’s been a great six years for me.

“Playing for such an illustrious club like Liverpool for six years is something any footballer would be proud of.

“I will be 29 in December, I have a contract here for three more years and I am very happy. I will keep striving to do my best and see what that time brings.”
