Liverpool's German midfielder, Emre Can revealed on Thursday that his club's target this season to end the Premier League in second place.
Newcastle earned a 2-2 draw on Benitez's most recent Anfield visit nearly two years ago, and he said: "It's not about me, or the managers, it's what happens out on the pitch".
The numbers make for pretty good reading if you're a Reds supporter, particularly when compared to how the club was performing pre-FSG. "We have to focus on that, we have to train for that and we have to give our best for that".
The redeveloped Main Stand, which opened last season, increased Anfield's overall capacity to 54,074 and led to matchday revenue increasing by £12m to £74m "mainly as a result in the increased hospitality sales", the club said.
"He is a very good addition for us and we are very happy to have him in the team".
"I ask my mother, every time she comes to Newcastle, to bring some food, some jam or things like that", said Merino.
The Reds have scored 103 goals in all competitions this season with attacking trio Mane, 31-goal Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scoring for fun.
"I am saying in reality "Keep going boys because you are doing excellent with decent people around you".
Jurgen Klopp looks set to resist the urge to rest his most important players for the second leg of Liverpool's Champions League last-16 tie against FC Porto next week, despite the club's enormous first-leg advantage and the fact that the fixture precedes the small matter of a north-west derby clash with Manchester United. We always try to help each other and we work as a team.
"At the moment, we're in a good way so everything is possible".
"I think to compare them to ourselves, Arsenal, Chelsea, you have to win multiple titles, you have to be consistent, not just one wonder season, which they are having".
Andy Hughes, Liverpool's chief operating officer, said: "With the full support of this ownership group, we have significantly improved the club's financial position over the past seven years and these results further demonstrate our solid financial progress - despite the ever-rising costs in football".
"We know that on our day we can beat any team in the world".
It also misses out the £75m arrived of Virgil van Dijk in January, and the £142m received from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho.
