Steven Gerrard feels winning the Carling Cup on Sunday will inspire Liverpool to a top four push.

Liverpool face Cardiff City at Wembley this Sunday.

"If we win on Sunday this group of players will experience what it's like to walk around a stadium full of your supporters going wild. That buzz and the tingles that gives you drives you on to want more.

"We're still in the FA Cup and challenging for a top four place in the league.

"There's no doubt winning the Carling Cup would have a really positive affect on us for the rest of this season. It would drive us on to achieve more."
