Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa has set his sights on a Premier League and UEFA Champions League double this season.
The Reds sit level on points with Chelsea at the summit of English football's top division, while a home win against Marseille on Wednesday would book a place in the last 16 of Europe.
Liverpool were forced to watch on as North West rivals Manchester United secured glory at home and abroad last term and Arbeloa is eager to replicate that triumph.
The 25-year-old recognises European and domestic success is a tough mission but he is optimistic manager Rafa Benitez has assembled an experienced squad which can rise to the challenge.
"It is always difficult to balance your ambitions in the Premier League and the Champions League," said Arbeloa.
"But we can do it. In other seasons we have been really focused on the Champions League because we have not had a good enough position in the league to fight for the title.
"We have the experience to handle both, I hope so. We want to win the two titles, and we want to be in there fighting right to the end in both."
