Liverpool have title chance, says Gerrard
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that his side have a chance of winning the title this season, after they beat Southampton 3-0 to move up to second in the Premier League, Sky Sports has reported.
In an even first half, Luis Suarez opened the scoring with a low curling shot after the ball ricocheted into his path. The Uruguayan turned provider for the second as Raheem Sterling slid the ball home with his first touch after coming on as a substitute, and then he was fouled for the penalty which Gerrard converted to make it three at the death.
The result took Liverpool above Manchester City, who are on Capital One Cup final duty on Sunday, as well as Arsenal, who fell to a surprise defeat at Stoke City. And with 10 games still to play including home fixtures with Man City and leaders Chelsea, Gerrard believes the Reds are very much in the title race.
He said: "I'm sure there are plenty of people around the Premier League looking out for us because we've got no Europe and we're fresh for every game. All we asked for at the beginning of the season was to be in it with 10 games to go, and we're certainly in it.
"Chelsea and Man City are still the favourites, but we just have to keep going and try and win every game and with world-class players in the team like Suarez, you can beat anyone.
"It's important to stay calm and take each game as it comes. We haven't got the experience, but we have got a lot of good things going for us. The challenge now is can we go and put in a good performance away at Old Trafford and see where we are with four or five games to go. If we're still in it, then why not?"
