Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes that the Reds' recent form shows that they are capable of pushing for a Champions League spot.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is confident that he and his teammates can push for a Champions League spot this season.

The Reds sit nine points away from fourth place in the Premier League table but the England skipper believes that the Merseyside team still have a chance of qualification following their 2-2 draw with Manchester City yesterday.

"We need to build on this and I'm feeling really confident about our ability to move up the table," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo. "We might not have got the results we wanted against the top sides but every time we have certainly matched them if not bettered them in games.

"No disrespect to the sides we've got coming up but if we keep playing like that then we can certainly put in a challenge for fourth place. If we perform like that we will pick up a lot of points between now and the end of the season."

Gerrard was named England Player of the Year last night.
