Gerrard : No team Untouchable on this planet

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says they're as good as any team on the planet after last week's victories over Real Madrid and Manchester United

He told "We have been to Stamford Bridge and won there, we got a draw at the Emirates and now we have won at Old Trafford.

"These results show that we are good enough to win the league but it has just been frustrating in other games we have drawn where we have not been able to break teams down.

"But there is no good in looking back, we just need to look forward.

"This has been a fantastic week and I am not sure if there has been a better week in my Liverpool career. We have comfortably beaten Real Madrid at home with a superb performance and then gone to Old Trafford and comfortably beaten Manchester United.

"This performance was right up there at the very top of great Liverpool ones in the past because we have beaten the world and European champions.

"The most pleasing thing was the character we showed when we went a goal down. Many teams would have gone to Old Trafford, conceded that goal and then given in or caved in, and United would have won by three or four. But we fought back.

"It was a wonderful performance and the result makes it look more emphatic than it was. We came here with a gameplan to fight and play a bit higher than usual. It would have been disappointing to have played defensive and negative and lost the game 1-0.

"Even when we went a goal down we still had the belief to get back into the game. We showed a lot of character and got our rewards in the end."
