Gerrard Talks Up New Team Spirit

There is a great sense of pride surrounding Anfield at the moment. Not only do Liverpool share the top spot in the Premier League, but they have also been celebrating a historic win over bitter north west rivals Manchester United, and also a come from behind victory against Marseille.

Steven Gerrard thinks this is thanks, in no small part, to the ''togetherness'' in their camp. "The team was very confident after Saturday [Manchester United]. We don’t want to get carried away and start setting targets about winning things, we just want to stay on this run, work hard, and I’m sure the results will come," the Liverpool captain told the club's official website.
"Winning brings confidence, and I could sense we were going to get another positive result before the match with Marseille. The mentality in the changing room is very positive at the moment," he said.

"I certainly feel we are stronger than last year. It was disappointing to lose in the semi-final [in Europe] then, and we want to go all the way this time, but it’s important not to get carried away."
"We know we’re a fantastic side in Europe and it’s always difficult away from home. We didn’t play well in the second half but you could see the character and togetherness," the 28-year old added.
"We just don’t like getting beaten," he concluded.
