Liverpool ace Luis Suarez has conceded the club are unlikely to challenge for the Premier League title this season, with a top-four finish the main goal.

The Reds currently sit in fifth spot in the Premier League table, six points behind leaders Manchester United after just seven games.

Suarez, who has been Liverpool's star performer so far this term, admits winning the title is now difficult because of the gap between the Reds and rivals like United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

"We have no limit and want to stay in the top four. But winning the Premier League is now very difficult," Suarez told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The main reason why it is so difficult is because the two Manchesters and Chelsea are unreachable. But we can win the cups."

Suarez, who inherited the famous No.7 shirt at Anfield, admits he was not aware of the signifcance of the shirt, but is happy to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Kevin Keegan and Kenny Dalglish.

"I didn't know the history of my No.7 shirt at Liverpool," added Suarez. "I picked it because it was one of the few numbers available.

"Now that I know the story I am proud to wear the '7' and I try not to feel the burden of its heritage."
