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 Fergie's 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.
Gerrard's first Premier League hat-trick and strikes from Dirk Kuyt and Albert Riera mean the Kop's goal difference is now two better than United's, 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. They're still in a better position but we must keep pushing them."
Gerrard said: "It's good to win convincingly and everyone knows we're on a rich vein of form. Confidence is high.
"United are capable of winning all their remaining games but we've got to keep on their shoulders so they're going into games knowing we're ready to pounce on any mistakes they make." (ANI)
