Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has revealed not one of his Liverpool colleagues is thinking about winning the Premier League.

Skrtel himself scored two goals to help his side thrash the then league-leaders Arsenal 5-0 on the weekend, but the defender insists the club are still "fighting for the top four."

"No-one in the dressing room is talking about the title," the Slovakian said. “We still have to play 13 matches and anything can happen so we are just going from game to game.

“We will try to get as many points as we can. We are fighting for the top four and the result against Arsenal showed we are ready for the battle.”

Brendan Rodgers' side currently occupy the fourth and final Champions League place, three points ahead of Tottenham and seven points behind top of the table Chelsea.

They head to Craven Cottage tonight to face Rene Meulensteen's Fulham, who battled to a 2-2 draw at Man United last time out. And Skrtel thinks it's not going to be easy.

"It's going to be a tough game," he said. "They are fighting against relegation and it's a different test. We have to show the kind of performance we did on Saturday and try to brig the three points home with us.

If they manage to do so, then maybe some of the players will begin to wonder. Many do believe that the squad Liverpool have they can win the league, or at least get in the top four. Three points tonight would certainly go a long way to achieving that.
