Jamie Carragher maintains that Liverpool have the ability to win the Premier League and are not concerned they may fall out of the top four.
The Reds have made a shaky start to the current campaign after already suffering defeats to Tottenham and Aston Villa before leaving it late to win at Bolton in their last outing.
Rafa Benitez's team are, therefore, already six points off the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham, who have recorded four wins out of four, while Manchester City have a 100 per cent record after three matches.
Carragher, though, insists Liverpool are still focused on ending a 20-year wait for a league title and are focused ahead of welcoming newly-promoted Burnley to Anfield on Saturday.
"There are other teams who could get into the top four this year - but hopefully not at our expense," the defender told the Liverpool Echo.
"We're not thinking about that, though, we're just thinking about the title and not about fourth place.
"A couple of teams have jumped out so far. We've already played Tottenham and Aston Villa and of course Manchester City are the side a lot of people are talking about, but if we start playing the way we can then I'm sure we'll be right up there."
