Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool could be the only team capable of challenging Manchester United for this season's Premier League title.

The experienced defender insists the club can be proud of their efforts this term, having moved ahead of the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the reckoning.

And Carragher sees Liverpool's move into second as a significant step in the right direction, he told "We finished fourth last season, but we have overtaken Chelsea and Arsenal and even though everyone at the club understands that it's not over yet by a long way, at the moment it looks like it is going to be us and Manchester United for the title."

"Just by overtaking Chelsea and Arsenal in the challenge is an achievement in itself already so everyone should be proud of that."

Nevertheless, the 31-year-old was eager to stress that the runners-up spot should not be seen as their ultimate ambition.

Instead, he has set his sights on a first league success in 19 years.

"A lot of people said at the start of the season that we needed to be in the title race at the end and at least be in with a fighting chance," added Carragher.

"Now hopefully we can go one step further and win this title.

"There are still a lot of games to go, so it's important everyone at the club remains calm."
