We are genuine contenders now says Gerrard

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has said his reds team are now “genuine title contenders”.

Speaking after his team’s 3-0 demolition of Manchester United at Old Trafford yesterday, Gerrard, who scored two and missed one of the three penalties his team were awarded, said “We’ve showed that we are genuine contenders and we are going to fight to the end for this,”

Gerrard also confirmed that he felt his team were far superior during the whole 90 minutes, saying “I have come here many times before and been played off the park,”

“They are a fantastic team and this is one of the most difficult places to come in the Premier League.

“We’ve come here and dominated from start to finish, yet we’re still going away slightly disappointed that we didn’t score more goals.

“We will enjoy this, but we’ll need to move on quickly. The easiest thing in football is to talk the talk.

“We have to treat Cardiff and Sunderland the same as Manchester United.”

But he added: “We believe that we can win the league.”

With Liverpool unbeaten in the last 10 matches and only 4 points behind Chelsea, there is a growing feeling that Liverpool’s long wait for their first Barclays Premier League title is coming to an end.
