Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is determined to fulfil his dream of leading the Reds to Premier League glory this season.
Liverpool are very much in contention for the title as of now as they sit in second place on the standings and are just one point behind league leaders Chelsea.
The Reds have not won the Premier League since 1990, but they have come close on numerous occasions, the most recent of which came in the 2013/14 season where they finished just two points behind Manchester City.
Despite a lengthy drought since they have tasted success in England’s elite competition, Coutinho is confident that his side can get the job done this season.
"That's obviously the dream, and that's what we've got to do," he told Sky Sports. "We have to dream it."
Liverpool failed to qualify for any European competitions this season, but Coutinho feels that it has given manager Jurgen Klopp an opportunity to implement his ideas.
"There's definitely more time now to work on our tactics in training and for the coach to get to know us," he said. "I like the tactical training we are doing. But yes, there is a lot of it.
"He is teaching us to press when we don't have the ball and keeping that pressure up. Then we have to keep possession when we do have the ball. It's about putting that mentality into us.
"It's all about the confidence and the mentality that the coach has given us. This used to be a team that didn't really believe in itself. Now the players feel more comfortable and this comes from the coach. That's something that's reflected on the pitch and in the results."
The Brazilian added that he learnt a lot under Mauricio Pochettino during his loan spell with Espanyol in 2012 and feels that the current Tottenham Hotspur boss’ ideology is very similar to that of Klopp’s.
"My confidence has been really building since my time at Espanyol," he said. "The two coaches are actually very similar on the pressing side of the game. They spend a lot of time on that side of it and it's a lot of hard work."
