Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam is of the belief that the club needs to be challenging for a spot in the Champions League next season.

The Reds have had a couple of disappointing campaigns in recent seasons and now the Scotland international wants a much-improved showing in 2012/13.

"We should be challenging for the Champions League, no doubt about that," he told the club's official website.

"You set your standards high and we've got a good group of players. People saw that last season and at times we were unlucky.

"We need to set our standards as high as we can, participate in every tournament we are in and try to win everything available to us."
