Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher insists the Anfield club are not worried about the threat posed by Manchester City and Spurs.
Mark Hughes and Harry Redknapp have guided their side's to 100 percent starts - with many tipping the the early-season pacesetters to break into the top four.
But the Reds stalwart says Liverpool are not contemplating losing their Champions League spot - but fully focused on winning the Barclays Premier League title.
Jamie Carragher isn't worried by the threat posed by Manchester City and Spurs
He said: 'There are other teams who could get into the top four this year – but hopefully not at our expense.
'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.
'We’ve only played four games and if we go on to have a successful season then we’ll play more than 60 matches, so it’s a long season and there’s still a long way to go.
'We’ve not had the best of starts but hopefully we’ll soon start coming into our own.
'We’ve got Burnley up next and they’ve been a great story so far, beating two of last year’s top five in Manchester United and Everton.
'Owen Coyle has done a great job with them so we know it’s going to be a difficult game.'
