Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has welcomed his side's turnaround in form but warns they are still not "fully around the corner".
After a dismal start to the season which saw them entrenched in the bottom three, Roy Hodgson's side have produced a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions to move ninth in the Barclays Premier League - within a point of fifth place.
That spell has come since the club's future was settled with the completion of John Henry's takeover recently - something Gerrard believes is no coincidence.
"There's been a turnaround but we still haven't got there yet," he said. "We still haven't got fully around the corner but we're on our way round it. Results have improved, we're playing better so the feeling and the confidence are a lot higher than they were a couple of weeks back.
"I think that (the takeover) has helped but I think it's down to the manager's ideas coming across, a lot of hard work on the training ground and everyone pulling in the right direction.
"The players are producing, standing up and being counted and I think that is showing in our recent run of results."
