Gerrard looking at top four finish for Liverpool

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is being realistic at aiming for a top four finish rather than the Premiership title. The Reds, one of the pre-season title favourites after finishing second last year, have fallen 13 points behind leaders Chelsea after a poor run of form throughout October and November.

Liverpool are just two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal after a morale-boosting derby win at Everton last weekend.

Gerrard told talkSPORT: "I think we have to be realistic. At the moment we're out of the title race, but we will keep trying to get back in it.

"There is still a lot of football to be played and it is possible to turn it around, but I think Chelsea are looking really strong at the moment.

"But our main target is to get back into the top four. We're coming off the back of a fantastic win at Everton and we want to continue that against Blackburn and try and go on a run of games where we can get closer to the teams above us."
