Steven Gerrard is enjoying Liverpool 's position as "dark horses" for the Premier League title. The Reds continued their unbeaten start to 2014 on Wednesday, following up the incredible 5-1 defeat of Arsenal with a last-gasp victory at Fulham . Having twice come from behind at Craven Cottage, Gerrard's stoppage-time penalty saw the Merseysiders through 3-2 as victors, moving them to within just four points of leaders Chelsea . Jose Mourinho described the Blues as a "little horse" not yet ready to win the title, with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers joking his side "may be the chihuahuas that run in between the horse's legs." There is, though, a growing belief that the Reds could mount a serious late challenge, with Gerrard returning to the equine theme when summing up their chances. "Against Arsenal, we showed how much class we've got," the Reds skipper told the club's official website, www.liverpoolfc.com. "We showed we've got talent all over the pitch; at home, with the atmosphere behind us, you don't have to motivate yourself - you just go out and perform, and more often than not you play well. Gerrard added: "But coming away on a Wednesday night, windy, on a difficult pitch, away to Fulham is a big test for the team. We've passed it but we still have to learn from our mistakes and defend better on the road if we're to finish in the top four places. We're in the mix. It's still early days, there's a lot of football to be played and we're not going to get carried away. But we are in good form. We feel as if we're dark horses. "We just carry on playing and trying to win as many games as we can. We have the advantage, in a funny way, of no European football, because we have just got the league and FA Cup to focus on." Rodgers' welcomes former side Swansea to Anfield in Liverpool's next league match, although before that comes a return to London for another clash with Arsenal, this time in the FA Cup. The Gunners will be looking for revenge just eight days after their mauling at Anfield, with Gerrard all too aware of the threat posed by them in the fifth-round tie. "Top sides, when they get beat 5-1, they are hurt," Gerrard said. "They have just battled to a 0-0 draw against Manchester United so they have showed they have defended quite well in the game. We're expecting a tight game at the Emirates and I think the 5-1 game will have no bearing on this game coming. We're expecting a really tough game. "It's a break from the league and we'll go there and give it everything we've got because we want a good cup run."
