Steven Gerrard warned Liverpool against getting carried away with their league position after victory at Southampton hoisted them into second in the table.

Luis Suárez opened the scoring at St Mary’s in the 16th minute with his first goal in six games with a low finish from close range.

Substitute Raheem Sterling then made it 2-0 in the 58th minute, before captain Gerrard stroked home a penalty to wrap up the win and leave the Reds four points behind leaders Chelsea with 10 games left to play.

It’s important to stay calm and take each game as it comes

“I’m sure there are many people around the Premier League looking out for us. We’re fresh going into every game because we don’t have any European games,” said Gerrard.

“We said at the start of the season that we wanted to be in with a chance of winning the title with 10 matches to play and we are certainly in it.

“We’re not the favourites – I think Chelsea and Man City are still the favourites – but we’ll just keep going and trying to win every game.

“It’s important to stay calm and take each game as it comes.”

Striker Suarez added: “In the last few games I didn’t score but that’s not important because I try my best to help the team. We all try to help the team and we played a very good game. We’re happy.”
