Liverpools Benitez and Gerrard warn Man U againMarch 23rd, 2009 - 3:14 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar.23 (ANI): Liverpool F C coach Rafa Benitez and star player Steven Gerrard have warned title favourites Manchester United that at present the momentum lies with them, and that Fergies boys will have to be wary of this surge.
Benitez insists his team have all the momentum after putting United, Real Madrid and now fifth-placed Villa to the sword.
Gerrards first Premier League hat-trick and strikes from Dirk Kuyt and Albert Riera mean the Kops goal difference is now two better than Uniteds, reports The Sun.
Benitez said: We can keep this momentum and the players know we can beat anyone. Now we are much closer and need to do our job and wait for United to make mistakes. Theyre still in a better position but we must keep pushing them.
Gerrard said: Its good to win convincingly and everyone knows were on a rich vein of form. Confidence is high. United are capable of winning all their remaining games but weve got to keep on their shoulders so theyre going into games knowing were ready to pounce on any mistakes they make. (ANI)
