Steven Gerrard is confident that Liverpool have the necessary experience to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds came agonizingly close to ending their 24-year wait for the top-flight crown last term, finishing two points behind eventual champions Manchester City.

I believe we are in a much better place now than we were this time last year. The reason being because we’ve got the taste, the know-how and the experience of being in a title race

And 34-year-old Liverpool captain Gerrard believes that Brendan Rodgers’s side are in a much better place than last summer and can challenge for the title.

“The only way to do that is to go and achieve something this season. But the longer I’ve reflected upon it and analysed the season, you can look back and be proud of your teammates,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website.

“I think the fans will agree with me that the performance levels last season were incredible. Some of our performances were top-drawer.

“I believe we are in a much better place now than we were this time last year. The reason being because we’ve got the taste, the know-how and the experience of being in a title race. If we can use the hurt of falling short last season in our favour then hopefully we can go one better.

“I think this is the first time in a long time that I can be confident of telling people that we are the real deal and are real title contenders before a ball has been kicked.”
