Gerrard: 'Nothing's over'

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has insisted his team can still win this season's Premiership title despite currently being 11 points behind leaders Manchester United and Chelsea.

    Steven Gerrard is hoping happier times are ahead for the Reds

    So often the saviour for his side, Gerrard has struggled to hit top form and his team is yet to win away from Anfield this season.
      
    "We haven't made the start to the season we hoped we'd make, but  we're more than capable of going on a run of 10 games or more  without defeat and that would put us right in the mix along with the  title contenders," the England midfielder Gerrard said.
      
    "Both United and Chelsea have difficult games coming up but we have to sort out our own form and get ourselves in a position to take advantage of any slips that anyone else makes. And they will slip up.
      
    "People have said the league's over for us, but we've been to Old Trafford and we've been to Stamford Bridge and we've still got them to come to us. Nothing's over yet," he also told Liverpool's official website.
      
    Gerrard is hoping that the start of the title charge begins on Saturday as Liverpool host the unbeaten Aston Villa.
      
    "Sunday's result at Old Trafford wasn't what we wanted, but we're in October, and with the talent we have in the dressing room, we can't be counted out of anything," the 26-year-old added.
