Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is not daunted by Manchester City’s current spending spree. In fact he brushes off any suggestion Mark Hughes’s team will finish higher than the mighty Scousers.

The Dutch international told the media…

‘They have bought some good players, but we are comfortable with our squad and we are confident we can play better than Manchester City this season.’

‘We are obviously looking at Manchester City and who they are buying. Every day it seems like it is a different player who is signing, but we will see what happens in the season.’


Liverpool are not worried!

‘They are bringing in quality players, but when you play together in a new team you need time.’

‘Maybe they can come into the top four, but we have to make sure we finish above them because we want to go one step higher after last season. We are not worried.’
