Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City need to believe we are after the title - Liverpool's Gerrard

Steven Gerrard has warned all premiership contenders that Liverpool are indeed chasing this season's Premier League title.

The Reds were not touted as one of the fancies this season but have found themselves in a very strong position, sitting four points behind leaders Chelsea with nine fixtures remaining, and a game in hand on the Blues.

Sunday's 3-0 victory at Manchester United suggested to captain Gerrard that perhaps the Reds are ready to pounce for the title and he feels the performance has sent a message to the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City who are all jockeying for top position.

"We believe it but I've said it many times, in football, the easiest thing is to talk the talk and we've got to go and treat Cardiff like Manchester United (next weekend) and then Sunderland like Manchester United," he told Sky Sports after scoring a brace from the penalty spot and seeing Luis Suarez round out the win with a late goal.

"And if we do, we'll win a lot of games between now and the end of the season so the rest of the people that are fighting for it with us have got to believe we're going for it."

Liverpool next meets second-bottom Cardiff City in south Wales next Saturday.
