Kuyt not setting personal targets

Dirk Kuyt has scored 32 goals in 114 appearances for Liverpool

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt is not setting himself a personal goal target this season, despite a good start to the campaign.

The Dutch international scored his seventh goal in Saturday's 2-0 win at Bolton - just four short of last season's tally of 11 in 47 games.

"For me it's not important, it's all about winning trophies," the 28-year-old told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"It's so far so good for me, but I don't look further than the next game."

Liverpool remain joint top of the Premier League after their 10th win of the season at the Reebok Stadium.

We all see how teams come to Anfield and just try to defend

The Reds' next four games see Fulham and West Ham United visit Anfield, before an away trip to Blackburn Rovers and then a home game against Hull City.

Kuyt said: "You can struggle against the lower teams, but you can win against the big teams. We saw that when we won against Chelsea, but drew against Stoke.

"That's the point of the Premier League, no game is easy. We all see how teams come to Anfield and just try to defend.

"I think that Fulham will do the same, so that will make it another difficult game."
