Gerrard: We Absolutely Demolished Arsenal

Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, believes his side’s 5-1 against Arsenal was one of the top three performances he was involved in in the last 15 years and insists the players are all behind Brendan Rodgers.

The coach stated after the game that Liverpool are focused on finishing in the top four and are not in the title race.

"According to Brendan we are not (in the title race)," Gerrard said. "Ask the manager (why not). Listen, he said we are not so we are all behind Brendan.

"We do what he says and he says we are not in the title race, so we carry on pushing for the top four and see where it takes us.

"I am trying to think back of a performance - especially in the first half - that I can remember in the last 15 years," added the England captain.

"Maybe one or two in the Champions League got close but that was as explosive as it gets. That is right up there: definitely in the top three performances I have been involved in.

"You are talking about a side that is top of the league with world-class players, ones who are worth £42million; Jack Wilshere, one of the country's big hopes who we are looking to perform at a World Cup; (Santi) Cazorla - a World Cup winner.

"We have absolutely demolished a top team there from start to finish."

With only 13 games to go, Liverpool are six points behind new log leaders, Chelsea, and only three points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham as well as nine points ahead struggling champions, Manchester United.

Gerrard, however, also warned his side to not get complacent when they travel to rock-bottom Fulham on Wednesday.

"I think the dangerous thing after a performance like that is can we motivate ourselves to get close to producing something similar against Fulham?

"If we do, we will do the same to Fulham. We performed fantastically against Everton (4-0) and then slipped up against West Brom (1-1), having taken the lead. We should have seen that game out."

Can Liverpool stay in the top four and perhaps even have a say in this year’s title race? Have your say in the comment section below.
