Victor Moses believes Liverpool are capable of challenging for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds are currently second and four points behind league leaders Arsenal after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Everton at Goodison Park in the Merseyside derby on Saturday.

And the 22-year-old, who joined Liverpool in a deadline day loan switch from Chelsea, praised Reds manager Brendan Rodgers for his “winning” philosophy.

“He’s a great manager to play under,” Rodgers told Liverpool Echo.

“He’s very clear with the players. He knows what he wants us to do.

“There’s a winning mentality but he also realises that if we are enjoying ourselves, we’re likely to do better.

“I’ve known him since I was 16 when I was at Palace and he was at Chelsea.

“He really wanted me to go there.

“I said no a few times. I thought Palace was the best place for me at that time. But he never forgot about me. I was delighted when he came in for me again.

“There were a few clubs interested in taking me, but when I heard about Liverpool my decision was made straight away.

“I wanted to be at a club that is fighting for trophies.

“There’s a lot of quality here and if we can keep the momentum going, I think we can challenge for the Premier League (title) and if not finish in the
top four.

“You have to believe you can be the best, otherwise there’s no point in trying.”
