Jamie Carragher admits it will be "very difficult" for Liverpool to challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Liverpool finished seventh in the 2009-10 campaign, resulting in the departure of Rafa Benitez, and his replacement Roy Hodgson has taken four points from his opening three games, leaving the club five points behind Chelsea already.
Though Carragher is reticent to suggest a title challenge is out of reach already, he does believe Liverpool will struggle to match the standards set by the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.
"People have said 'You've done this and that for Liverpool' but we've not won a trophy for four years and that is annoying me a little bit,'' Carragher said.
"I certainly don't want to go on another couple of years not winning one before I finish at Liverpool. I don't see any reason why we can't win a trophy this season or the next couple.
"The one I haven't won is the league but I suppose that will be very difficult this season going from seventh last season. But I see no reason why we can't have a good go and have a trip to Wembley."
