Rafa Targets Six Wins Out Of Six

Rafa Benitez has challenged Liverpool to win all their remaining games in their bid for title glory. The Reds are just a point behind Manchester United at the top having played a game more. And they can return to the summit, for 24 hours at least, if they overcome an injury-hit Arsenal at Anfield tonight. Benitez though is already looking at the rest of the run-in facing his side, and knows they could need maximum points to pip United to the title. "For us the important thing is to do our job, to prepare properly for every game and look to take three points from each of them," he told Liverpool's official website. "If we do that and then still can't win the league then there's nothing else we can do. It still depends on United, but we have to keep the pressure on them. If we win tonight then we go back to the top and put them under more pressure for tomorrow night. "Hopefully the other teams around us are distracted by the Champions League. When you are playing in two massive competitions it can be difficult and so we have to be ready if other teams make a mistake." Liverpool have had a week to rest since that heartbreaking Champions League exit at the hands of Chelsea. But Benitez says his team have recovered well both mentally and physically from their breathless 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge, which saw them eliminated 7-5 on aggregate. "When you lose games it can be difficult but the way we lost it wasn't too bad. We played well, scored four goals at Stamford Bridge and so I am sure our confidence hasn't been affected. "The players have trained really well and yesterday's session was fantastic. The atmosphere among them is really good and I feel we are in a good moment."
