Liverpool are dark horses in title race, declares Steven Gerrard
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrrard believes the Reds are outsiders in the bid to win the Premier League title
Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool are dark horses in the Premier League title race.
The Reds moved to within four points of leaders Chelsea after a 3-2 victory over Fulham on Wednesday night, with Gerrard scoring an injury-time winner from the penalty spot.
We are in good form. We feel as if we’re dark horses
Last Saturday, Liverpool were emphatic 5-1 winners against second-placed Arsenal at Anfield, prompting many to suggest that the Reds are genuine title contenders this season.
And 33-year-old Gerrard, who skippered Liverpool to their best-ever second-place in 2009, feels the Reds are in the mix to win an elusive 19th top-flight crown.
“At home, with the atmosphere behind us, you don’t have to motivate yourself – you just go out and perform, and more often than not you play well. Coming away on a Wednesday night, windy, on a difficult pitch, away to Fulham is a big test for the team,” Gerrard is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“We’ve passed it but we still have to learn from our mistakes and defend better on the road if we’re to finish in the top four places.
“We’re in the mix. It’s still early days, there’s a lot of football to be played and we’re not going to get carried away. But we are in good form. We feel as if we’re dark horses.”
