Kuyt eyes Premier improvement

Dirk Kuyt insists Liverpool are determined to transfer their UEFA Champions League displays into the Premier League.

The Reds have been impressive in Europe in recent years - claiming glory in 2004/05 and reaching the final last term.

However, Rafa Benitez's side have struggled to replicate the same success in England's top flight.

But Kuyt is sure that Liverpool have the potential to be a force in the Premier League, and he has urged his team-mates to build on Wednesday's 2-0 UEFA Champions League triumph over Internazionale.

"Everyone I've spoken to, especially the Dutch players around Europe, know how good Liverpool can be - even if we've not shown it over the last couple of games," he said.


"First we have to beat Inter, and reach the next round, and then we can take it from there.

"The manager and all the players are saying the same thing - keep focused. We played well against Inter but want to play more like that in the Champions League and Premier League now.

"If we can go a long way in this competition like last year, it would make up for the disappointments so far this season. We know we have the quality, we just have to show it on the pitch."
