Premier League title not the aim for Liverpool, says Gerrard
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has insisted the Reds are not aiming to win the Premier League title, but are confident of a top four finish, says Sky Sports.
Liverpool are currently second in the Premier League with the same record as Arsenal, who are top with 16 points. Brendan Rodgers’ side has only dropped points against Southampton and Swansea.
But despite their impressive start to the season, Gerrard remains subdued about winning the title: “I'd never say never about our chances of winning the Premier League title. But if I'm being honest, that's not the aim, Gerrard told the club's official website. “The aim is for a top-four place,” he added.
Gerrard, currently on international duty with England, has played a part in all of Liverpool’s Premier League games so far this season, scoring one goal.
The Reds finished seventh last season, and Gerrard has reiterated that a top-four finish is priority for Rodgers’ side. Liverpool will travel to Newcastle following the international break, the Magpies currently sit 11th in the league table.
