Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard feels they can finish the year inside the top four.

Liverpool recorded a dramatic 3-2 victory over West Ham United at Upton Park on Sunday to move into the top half of the Barclays Premier League table - just four points behind fourth-place Everton.

"I'm really pleased with the lads. It was a fantastic performance," the captain told the Liverpool Echo.

"I think before the game people were doubting us and thinking we would be a bit toothless in the final third without our top striker.

"But we've gone away from home, scored three goals and got the three points we came here for.

"We're building slowly towards where we want to be. We've got two home games now against Aston Villa and Fulham.

"If we can capitalise and make it 12 points out of 12 then we will find ourselves a lot closer to fourth."
