Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard can sense a new spirit of "togetherness" after victories over Manchester United and Marseille this week.

"I wasn't aware of our recent record but going on good runs is something we have to try to do," said Gerrard, who requires one goal to reach a century for Liverpool following his double against Marseille. "The team was confident after Saturday.

"Before the game I could sense we were going to get another positive result. We know we're a fantastic side in Europe and it's always difficult away from home. We didn't play well in the second half but you could see the togetherness. We just don't like getting beaten."

On his two-goal performance, Gerro added: "I'm sure people will mention the goals on my behalf.

"But for me the real heroes were the back four and especially Pepe [Reina]. We all have him down as the best keeper in the Premier League. He's immense."
