Liverpool have repeatedly played down their chances of winning the title, but Luis Suarez feels a positive festive period could spark a push towards glory.
At the start of the season, Liverpool were perceived to be well behind the level of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
However, they have kept pace with the leaders and are a mere two points adrift of the Gunners at the top of the table.
The Reds thrashed Tottenham at the weekend, and Suarez feels such form is of the level required of title winners.
But he is aware that they face massive games against City and Chelsea in the coming weeks.
The Star’s Kevin Francis has the quotes.
If we continue this level the next two or three weeks we can win the league or we can finish in the top four.
It’s important we concentrate and focus on the next game.
We know that after Cardiff we have two very, very big games.
That will be important to what comes next.
Suarez was picking up silverware on Monday evening, as reported by the Mail's Paul Collins, as he was named Player of the Year at the Football Supporters' Federation Awards.
Suarez was involved in a light-hearted moment prior to Liverpool’s win at Tottenham on Sunday. Mascot Olivia Brown snubbed the forward's handshake and instead put her hand to her nose and twiddled her fingers. It has now emerged that the youngster’s father put her up to the dare.
The Mail’s Rik Sharma picked up on an interview Mr Brown gave to the Bedfordshire on Sunday:
I said I'd give her £20 to give him the thumb to the nose and the twiddly fingers. Afterwards she came back to our seats and said 'dad I've done it' and I told her I didn't see it and she said he just laughed and then she asked for her £20.
It was all good-natured because she laughed and he did too. It's made my day—it's just hilarious.
