Gerrard: Liverpool 'dark horses' for title

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said his side are in the race to win the Premier League title this season, Sky Sports has reported, but the midfielder insisted the Reds are far from favourites.

Gerrard scored a last minute penalty as Liverpool beat Fulham 3-2 on Wednesday night, the spot kick ensuring Brendan Rodgers’ side became the only top four team to win in the midweek round of fixtures.


Chelsea and Arsenal drew with West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United respectively while Manchester City’s game against Sunderland was postponed due to bad weather. As a result Liverpool are now four points adrift of leaders Chelsea and will welcome the Blues to Anfield in April.


“We're in the mix,” Gerrard said. “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.


“We just carry on playing and trying to win as many games as we can. We have the advantage, in a funny way, of no European football, because we have just got the league and FA Cup to focus on.”


A Kolo Toure own goal had put Fulham in front at Craven Cottage, only for a Gerrard pass to tee up Daniel Sturridge to equalise. Kieran Richardson later capitalised on a Martin Skrtel error to restore the home team’s lead but Philippe Coutinho put the sides level again before Gerrard’s successful effort from 12 yards.
