Gerrard confident Liverpool title push on-track

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists the club's quest for the Premier League title is still on track while claiming leaders Arsenal will crack under the pressures of the campaign.

Gerrard, with four goals in his last five games going into Saturday's game with Fulham, also considers he is back to his best form after an accepted difficult spell.

He said: "I played through it and now I have come out the other side, scoring goals and feeling great.

"We are keeping pace at the top and we are not at our best yet, while few would argue that Arsenal are playing to their full potential at the moment.

"They're on fire and playing out of their skin. But they have not had the problems that us, Chelsea and Manchester United have had with injuries to key players. Gerrard told LiverpoolFC magazine: "The only thing we can do is get our own house in order and keep winning. Our away form is a massive improvement on last season, and we know we must improve at home.

"But people are saying we are out of it and struggling. Wrong. We are in the first week of November, in a better position than we were this time last season and unbeaten in the league with a game in hand on most.

"Let us see where we are when the prizes are handed out come May, that is what counts."
