Liverpool vice-captain James Milner admits that the club needs to give an extra push in their bid to land major silverware, with trophies “expected” at Anfield.
The Reds are one of the most decorated British teams of all time, and their fans enter any given campaign confident that their side will be in the mix for top honours.
It has, however, been six years since the last success was toasted, with Kenny Dalglish overseeing a League Cup triumph in 2012.
And Milner concedes that the time has come for a star-studded side to deliver.
He told Premier League productions: “A club like Liverpool is used to winning trophies, it’s expected. It’s something we expect as a squad and individuals; we all came here because we want to win trophies and be part of that.
“It has been pleasing to get to three finals, and two of those European finals, since I’ve been at the club but you have to get over the line ultimately, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t.
“Those experiences are going to stand us in good stead hopefully for finals to come, going through that together and those experiences. The more finals you get to, not only do your chances go up of winning one, but you get that experience of being there. And you know how it feels to lose, ultimately.
“So next time you go there, hopefully, there’s less pressure on you. As a team, getting to those finals has helped, but we have to get over the line in one sooner rather than later.”
