Gerrard: We must compete with United

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says that the club will be motivated by trying to haul back Manchester United's Premier League title record next season.

• Dalglish unhappy with start date
• Zapata close to Liverpool move

Gerrard, 31, believes he has at least four years left in the game and is keen to add the only significant club winner's medal still missing from his personal trophy cabinet after the Old Trafford club claimed a record breaking league title No. 19 in May.

"As a Liverpool fan and a player it's frustrating when you see your arch-rivals lifting trophies but you've got to give credit where it's due. They've won it, they've overtaken us," he said. "Now the challenge for us is to equalise. We've got to make sure we've got a squad capable of going into the season and competing with Manchester United."

Gerrard's last Liverpool appearance was against Manchester United in March, when the Reds toppled their rivals 3-1, but the Anfield side fell woefully short of top spot last season and Gerrard missed a large chunk of the season through injury.

The skipper, however, believes he will be back in top form and, alongside some new signings, is hopeful of a more productive campaign next year.

"We're happy with what we've achieved but there's still a lot of time for me to achieve bigger and better things,'' he added. ''I'd like to finish my career with a few more trophies.

"I always look at the 35 marker. If I get there and I'm still involved with Liverpool I'll be delighted but at the moment I'm feeling as good as ever. I've had time to get my body right, get my body strong. I'm still four or five weeks away from playing a game but I believe I'll come back in better physical condition than I've ever been.

"I want to come back with a bang, I want to have a big season. It's been non-stop football for me since I started when I was 17. I've never had a period of more than four or five weeks out of the game, so it's been nice to rest mentally.

"You don't want to miss games but when you're watching them it gives you that edge, that buzz to get back. I'll come back hungry and hopefully there's a very productive season ahead for me. I've had a rest mentally, my injury's coming on well and I can't wait for the season to start."
