The Reds moved to within four points of leaders Chelsea with a 3-2 win against Fulham – courtesy of an injury time penalty from their skipper – on Wednesday night to cap an impressive few weeks of form.
Prior to the clash at Craven Cottage, the Merseyside club had smashed nine goals past Everton and Arsenal in two weeks while picking up a point away to West Brom.
Their recent run has led to talk of a title challenge from the Anfielders, to which their manager has responded negatively.
However Gerrard feels that Liverpool are in the battle, although he concedes that they’re outsiders:
“We’re in the mix,” he is quoted by Sky Sports.
“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.”
Gerrard netted the winning goal at Fulham to take his tally for the season to seven, despite him now operating in a deeper role.
