Steven Gerrard has warned Liverpool that they still have plenty to do in the race for a top-four finish.

The Reds are two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United after an impressive 12-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.

There are still a lot of games to be played and we haven’t achieved anything yet

However, Liverpool face tough games against the Red Devils, Arsenal and Premier League leaders Chelsea before the end of the season.

Reds captain Gerrard, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury over the past month, is refusing to get carried away with the Merseyside outfit’s recent form.

Gerrard told Liverpool’s website: “Winning our last four league games has certainly improved our chances of finishing in the top four.

“At the same time we know our recent good run has guaranteed absolutely nothing.

“After our up-and-down start to the season, all it’s done is get us in contention for a Champions League spot. Plenty of other teams are fighting for the same objective.

“None of them are going to make it easy for us, so we have to keep picking up points. There are still a lot of games to be played and we haven’t achieved anything yet.”

Gerrard is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season after the 34-year-old midfielder agreed a deal to join Major League Soccer outfit LA Galaxy in January.

While the Reds midfielder is desperate to make a return to first-team action following his injury lay-off, the Liverpool captain accepted that he isn’t guaranteed a place in the starting line-up.

“In recent weeks the manager has had to utilise all of the squad and each player who has got on the pitch has taken their chance by performing well,” Gerrard added.

“I’ve said previously that choosing the starting XI should never be an easy task for the boss and when everyone is available that will certainly be the case.”

Liverpool face Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Monday night.
