Steven Gerrard has summed up the new belief that is driving Liverpool towards their first title for 18 years by insisting the Reds can beat anyone, anywhere.
The captain, and scorer of the penalty winner against Portsmouth on Wednesday night, claims Liverpool have no reason to fear any away ground.
"It is a great feeling to be top of the table, especially knowing that we have beaten two of our main title rivals (Chelsea and Manchester United) along the way," said Gerrard.
"This season we have a belief that we can go anywhere and win. We believe we can win in any situation, even when we have backed ourselves into a corner.
"But no-one here is going to be getting carried away with our position after recent results.
"There is extra pressures being top of the table, we are there to be shot at and we become an even bigger scalp for the rest of the league."
Goalkeeper Jose Reina believes Liverpool's future prospects depend on winning every home game, which they have often failed to do in the past when confronted by defensive opponents.
Reina said: "The win over Portsmouth was a hugely important three points for us because we have to keep on winning.
"Once you are at the top of the table you have to do everything you can to defend that position and that means winning every game you can.
"To mount a title challenge you have to be able to win games in every way. You have to be able to come from behind, and also win when in front."
