Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says the League Cup will be taken seriously by his team this season.
The Reds have been struggling for form in the Premier League and the Europa League but the German says they will not underestimate the League Cup as they prepare to host Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
"It is the same thing in Germany, the cups are very important – but when I came here, everyone said we [Borussia Dortmund] won the title twice," Klopp said.
"Nobody said we were the first double winners in Dortmund's history.
"In Germany, [the cups] are a very important thing – but [in England] it was more interesting that we'd played in the final of the Champions League.
"I have not been here long to understand fully the English feeling about the cups, but for me they are all the same – I want to win games. That is all.
"I don't want to give up before we have to. It is the most important cup in the world because it is the only game we will play tomorrow."
