Mohamed Salah is convinced Liverpool are on the cusp of winning silverware and says he is desperate to bring the league title back to Anfield.
The Reds last won the title under Kenny Dalglish in the 1989-90 season and last won a trophy in 2012 - also under Dalglish - when they beat Cardiff at Wembley to lift the League Cup.
Salah, whose goal against Bournemouth on Sunday saw him become the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush to register 20 goals before Christmas, is certain the club are on the verge of success under manager Jurgen Klopp.
He told liverpoolfc.com: "As a team, I know we haven't won the Premier League for a long time, so I would love to win it with Liverpool.
"We have a great team, we have a great manager, so everything is good at the club - and I am sure we can win trophies here together."
After coming through the ranks at Cairo-based El Mokawloon, Salah moved to Swiss side FC Basel in 2012.
He immediately caught the eye with a series of impressive performances, helping Basel to the semi-finals of the Champions League in his first season before joining Chelsea in January 2014.
Liverpool were interested in the free-scoring forward before he joined the Blues, but it was only after playing for Chelsea at Anfield that Salah realised he was destined to play for the Reds.
He said: "There was interest from Liverpool when I went to Chelsea, but I think if I'd come at that time maybe things wouldn't have maybe have gone as well then as they have for me now. Who knows?
"But I went to Chelsea and everything worked out how it did and now I am here at Liverpool at the right time.
"When I go somewhere, I am always telling myself 'I have to learn from here' - and I know, 100 per cent, I learned a lot from Chelsea; I learned how to be more professional and to become a better person and player.
"It was a big step in my career and I had a good relationship with the players there - and you could see that when we played them at Anfield recently.
"It was while I was at Chelsea that I first got to play at Anfield. I can remember I told myself - as I said on my very first day here - 'I have to come here one day and play' after I'd experienced that atmosphere.
"That atmosphere was unbelievable, really. I was very happy to play here against Liverpool - and now I am even happier to play for Liverpool here."
