"There's absolutely no doubting that we have the quality, it's just about having that consistency and getting the approach right," Fairclough told the official site.
"Jürgen's a very ambitious manager, he hasn't come to Liverpool just to play out time, so to speak.
"He's motivated, he's highly driven, and I'm sure he's getting that over to players at this point in time, and it's up to everybody to actually stand up and deliver.
"I'd like to think that they're well capable of qualifying for the Champions League."
