Steven Gerrard has played down Liverpool’s chances of winning the 2013/14 Premier League title.
The Reds skipper has so guided his side to second spot on the league table but prior to Saturday’s Merseyside derby with Everton has made it clear that the team is not looking too far ahead.
"I think it's important for me as captain of the team not to raise expectations," he said.
"When you're talking about winning titles, it's premature, it's too early, and I don't want to get anyone's hopes up.
"That would be unfair. Our dream and our plan at the beginning of the season was to break into the top four.
"We're slightly ahead of where we thought we'd be, but it's a tough league and there's six or seven teams capable of finishing in the top four... so there's (going to be) a huge fight.
"But the confidence and belief are definitely there."
