Gerrard: Reds getting it together

Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard has an ominous warning for rivals at home and abroad that Liverpool are beginning to get their act together.

The Reds travel to Upton Park on Saturday to face a West Ham side who Gerrard scored twice against last season in a convincing 3-0 win as Liverpool homed in on second spot in the Barclays Premier League.

He senses it is a lucky ground for Rafael Benitez's men, and says: "We got a really good win at West Ham last season, we were well organised and very dangerous on the counter-attack, and I am sure that will be the plan again at the weekend."

He added: "The title race seems to be becoming a big six, and at the weekend we have the Manchester derby while Chelsea play Tottenham. So something will have to give.

"So hopefully we can get a good win at West Ham, concentrate on our own performance and pray the results will fall in our favour by the end of the weekend.

"We are slowly getting back to where we want to be with three wins on the spin and hopefully another at West Ham.

"The confidence is starting to come back into the squad now, losing those two early games(against Spurs and Aston Villa) close together was not good but we are building slowly back to the form we want.

"It takes a while to get back to your best, but we are happy with the reaction from everybody so now we aim to go and get a good win at West Ham on Saturday.

"It is still very early, but it was important that we recovered from that poor start. This is only the beginning for us.

"We have seen Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea start well, and some of the big teams without important players, so it is going to be an interesting fight this season."
