Gerrard backing Liverpool to finish in top four and claim a trophy despite poor start

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed that the side is targeting a top four finish and a trophy this season under the guidance of new manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Reds have endured a poor start to the season winning just four of their first 11 games, but Gerrard is confident his side can put together a winning streak that can hopefully kickstart their season.

When asked about Liverpool’s ambitions were this season, Gerrard simply replied: “Top four and a trophy,” he told BBC’s ‘Football Focus’.

Liverpool suffered another setback on Thursday with a 3-2 home defeat to Udinese in the Europa League, but having thrashed Norwich 5-2 in their last Premier League game, Gerrard feels his side can now go on a winning run and move up the table.

“The Norwich win will be the catalyst to push us on. We should have a few more points but teams will find it really difficult to play against us.”

“I’m confident we can go on a run of winning games.

“They are good opportunities but they are also tough games. They are games we should be winning, certainly here at home.

“We’ve being playing well for a number of weeks, so if we can continue that I am sure we can take maximum points in both those games.”
