Steven Gerrard is backing his Liverpool side to win a first ever Premier League title and finish at the head of the top flight for the first time in 19 years.
Liverpool went in to Christmas on top of the table and cemented their position with a 5 – 1 demolition of Newcastle in the North East on Sunday.
The Liverpool captain maintains that the current side is the best he has ever played in saying:
We have big players here and we will have a lot of tests and challenges to come.
But if we keep playing like this then we will be there. This is the best team I have played with.
You look around the dressing room and, from the keeper to the forwards, we have some fantastic players. There is a confidence that we can get over the big hurdles.
We have given ourselves a great chance. If we want to stay at the top and be involved in this title race, we have got to deal with the pressure.
