Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has promised that the Reds will pick up many points between now and the end of the season.

The Reds drew 2-2 away at Manchester City yesterday and had every reason to feel they should have won the game, with large parts of it seeing Liverpool putting pressure on the champions.

A draw moved Liverpool on to 36 points for the season so far, after 25 games played, a total which leaves Gerrard’s side nine off a top four spot that they are desperate to grab.

The Liverpool captain has seen enough from his team-mates through to believe that the Reds can start to pile up the points before the end of the season and push strongly to finish in the top four.

"We need to build on this and I’m feeling really confident about our ability to move up the table", Gerrard told his club’s official site.


"We might not have got the results we wanted against the top sides but every time we have certainly matched them if not bettered them in games.

"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."

Liverpool have picked up an average of 1.44 points per game during the current campaign. Only one season in the last ten years have the Reds ended up with an average below their current total: last season, when they clocked up just 1.36 points per game.
