Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has sensationally claimed that Liverpool should not be considered challengers for this year's Premier League crown.

The 33-year-old has stated that his side's priorities lie in ensuring they manage a top four finish, not winning the title, despite their excellent start to the season.

Whilst Gerrard refused to rule out the Reds' pipping their rivals to secure the top spot, he insisted that it Champions League football is their main aim.

"I'd never say never about our chances of winning the Premier League title," the England skipper said.

"But if I'm being honest, that's not the aim. The aim is for a top-four place."

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side have defied early expectations by performing brilliantly in the opening few fixtures.

The Merseyside club, who finished 7th last term, find themselves second in the league after seven matches, on level points with leaders Arsenal on 16 points.

Such form has paved the way for claims that Gerrard's team can go all the way this year, despite the fact that Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United were the odds on favourites to battle it out over the course of this campaign.
