Steven Gerrard: Liverpool captain has set his sights on fourth

Gerrard produced a trademark long-range strike in their 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium which left the Anfield club seventh in the table.

The Reds are currently nine points adrift of Tottenham in fourth but the Liverpool skipper has not yet ruled out securing a return to the UEFA Champions League.

Gerrard told Metro: "No disrespect to the sides we've got coming up but if we keep playing like that then we can certainly put in a challenge for fourth place.

"If we perform like that we will pick up a lot of points between now and the end of the season.

"The team is looking really strong at the moment. Before the transfer window we were lacking a bit up front as Luis Suarez was almost having to do two jobs.

"But now Daniel Sturridge has come in and given us more options going forward. Daniel has done brilliantly for us so far."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
