Liverpools season should be judged on their Premier League finishing position rather than any cup success, says John Barnes. After taking up the Liverpool reins in October 2015, Jurgen Klopp led the Reds to the finals of the Capital One Cup and Europa League last season, but an eighth-place finish in the Premier League means they will not be competing in Europe in 2016/17. Liverpool finished 21 points behind champions Leicester City last season and Barnes says they must close the gap to the countrys best this campaign. A success for me, with every team, is how well you do in the league, the former Liverpool winger told Sky Sports. If you win the Europa League but finish 10th in the league, is that success? Not to me its not. If you win the League Cup but finish 10th in the league, is that success? Its not.If Liverpool finish third but dont win a trophy or get to a final, that would be more successful. The quality of a team is shown over a period of time, which is the season. In a cup you can be lucky. Liverpool were beaten finalists in the Capital One Cup and Europa League last season The aim for Liverpool this season should be pushing up the league and challenging. Wed like to challenge to win the league but we finished eighth last year so you cant say unless we finish second or third its not success. But as long as were moving in the direction and were competitive in every game we play and coming into April we are still not far off the top of the league, thats success.I wouldnt put them under pressure to say unless we finish in the top four its not success because we could finish fifth and be six points off first or fourth and 30 points off first.Liverpool must aim to finish as close as possible to the top in terms of points, which would mean were competing with whoever wins the league. That would be success: Liverpool right in the mix with the best teams.Liverpool have already spent big money in the transfer window, with a £36m outlay on Southamptons Sadio Mane and the £25m purchase of Newcastles Georginio Wijnaldum. Defenders Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan have also arrived from Germany, along with goalkeepers Loris Karius and Alex Manninger. The quality of a team is shown over a period of time, which is the season. In a cup you can be lucky. John Barnes The Reds are not alone in making significant investments, though, with the majority of leading Premier League sides spending large sums on new recruits. However, Barnes says the key work Liverpool will do this summer is on the training field, where he expects Klopp to relish the extra time he has to mould his squad in his style.Regardless of whatever players he brings in, I trust him to integrate a style that suits them, said Barnes. I wouldnt be disappointed if Liverpool didnt sign big name players because hes signed Mane, Matip… players who he knows he can get the most out of.Can the players do what he wants? It doesnt matter about how good we think they are. No matter what players you have, if they can understand what you want from them and they can do it, you can be successful. All you can ask any manager to do is maximise the players at his disposal.Liverpool pulled off several standout results last season, including big wins over Manchester City home and away, and Barnes expects them to add more consistency to their performances this time around, following a full pre-season under Klopp. Liverpool enjoyed some big wins last season but must strive for consistency, says Barnes Every season there is excitement all over football, all through the leagues; new players, new managers, renewed optimism, said Barnes. And its probably a more exciting time in the Premier League than before because we now have seemingly the top managers in the world there and a really exciting season ahead.From Liverpools perspective, Im really looking forward to it. When Klopp came last year I said I wouldnt judge him positively or negatively because it wasnt his team, he didnt have a pre-season with the players, which I think is important.To get your style over, to implement the strategy you believe in, really takes a good pre-season to do that. Last year he didnt have much time to work on anything. You could see at times they played well - against Man City and Chelsea - but at times they didnt.Looking at what they did on the odd occasion last year you can see that given time and given his influence over a longer period of time, particularly during pre-season, they will be able to do that more consistently.John Barnes is supporting the Weetabix #Sportingstarts campaign for summer 2016, and was challenged to take up bubble football. #Sportingstarts will see over 15 million special promotional packs of Weetabix, across the whole Weetabix family, and every pack purchased will come with a £5 sports voucher PLUS a free or 2-4-1 sports session.

Even that couldnt slow them down against the New Orleans Hornets. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook scored 31 points apiece and the Thunder overcame injuries to two key backups to beat New Orleans 101-93 Monday night for their 10th straight home win.NEW YORK -- The Toronto Raptors are the only thing standing between the Brooklyn Nets and a perfect 2014. Patrick Patterson stole Deron Williams inbounds pass and made the go-ahead jumper with six seconds left, and the Raptors stopped a five-game winning streak by the Nets for the second time this month with a 104-103 victory Monday night. Toronto dropped Brooklyn to 10-2 in January and opened a 2 1/2-game lead in the Atlantic Division over the Nets, who would be on the doorstep of the division lead if they could solve their neighbours to the north. "These guys are chasing us but theyre putting it together. Theyre playing well," Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said. "Were the only team that beat them in 2014. I mean, thats a tough team. They had the game and we made a play and we made a shot." Brooklyn had a three-point lead with 17 seconds left behind Paul Pierce in his best game with the Nets, but John Salmons scored on a drive with 12 seconds remaining before Brooklyn took its last timeout to move the ball into the frontcourt. Patterson stole the pass and fed Lowry, who got it back to Patterson for his jumper. Pierce was well off on a final attempt. "We knew they didnt have any timeouts. We guessed right and Patrick looked like Richard Sherman out there with that steal," Lowry said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks defensive back who attended the game with a number of his teammates. Lowry finished with 31 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who clinched a winning record in consecutive months for the first time since December 2009 and January 2010. Pierce scored 33 points, making seven three-pointers in a strong bounce-back performance after going just 2 for 10 in his emotional return to Boston on Sunday. He had the Nets in position to win after scoring their last nine points before Toronto stole it. "Last night was a tough game to play in, so many emotions," Pierce said. "It was good to just get some normalcy back today and I felt comfortable, relaxed. But it wouldve been better if we got the win today, though." The stunning turnaround deflated the crowd at Barclays Center for a back-and-forth game that drew a visit from several Seahawks, who will hold their Super Bowl media day Tuesday at the Nets last home, the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Sherman and Bobby Wagner ggrabbed a baseline seat in the first half, while Russell Wilson and other players sat above in a private box.dddddddddddd Jonas Valanciunas had 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, who played without injured leading scorer DeMar DeRozan. Terrence Ross, who tied a franchise record with 51 points and made 10 3-pointers Saturday, had a quiet 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting. But Toronto got a big boost from Patterson, who ditched the mask he began the game with for a recent broken nose and finished with 15 points off the bench. "This is all about our toughness, our resiliency," Patterson said, "no matter whos out there during the course of the game, no matter whos not playing." Andray Blatche scored 20 points for the Nets, who lost 96-80 in Toronto on Jan. 11, a night after they played two overtimes in a victory over Miami. Lowry scored six straight points before Amir Johnson made a pair of free throws during an 8-0 run that gave Toronto a 94-85 lead with about eight minutes to play. The Nets answered with nine in a row to tie it on Alan Andersons jumper, and after Valanciunas basket, Pierce nailed consecutive three-pointers to make it 100-96 with 2:37 remaining. "Paul played well," teammate Kevin Garnett said. "He totally carried us for that fourth quarter, that second half, and we all came in and just said at the end of the game weve got to make plays, weve got to close games out and tonight we didnt do that." Toronto cut it to one and had a chance for the lead when Lowry stole Williams pass intended for Pierce, but Williams redeemed himself by drawing an offensive foul on Lowry with 19 seconds left. Pierce then made two free throws, but the Nets couldnt overcome Williams next giveaway. "Two turnovers in the last minute of the game, its not what I typically do, but thats how it goes sometimes," Williams said. There were eight lead changes in an entertaining second quarter, two in the final 1.3 seconds. Andersons three-pointer put the Nets up by two, but Lowry beat the buzzer from beyond halfcourt to give Toronto a 57-56 halftime lead. NOTES: DeRozan had made 125 consecutive starts. ... Ross, DeRozan and the Nets Mirza Teletovic were all nominated for last weeks Eastern Conference player of the week award, which was won by Atlantas Paul Millsap. ' ' '
