Jordan Henderson, the Liverpool captain, urged his teammates to remain high on confidence in the Premier League title race this season.
Henderson said that Liverpool will continue to fight in the middle of the decisive week for both his team and Manchester City, for the Premier League title glory. The Reds managed to reclaim the top of the table thanks to a 2-0 win over hosts Cardiff City.
Previously, Manchester City had been in the top position after successfully defeating Tottenham Hotspur with a narrow scoreline of 1-0. However, Pep Guardiola's team has a game in hand.
The Manchester derby between Man United and Man City will take place on Wednesday. The Citizens will return to the top position if they can register a victory over the Red Devils.
But Henderson still believes Liverpool still has the chance to win their first Premier League title, since the competition turned into a Premier League.
"This is a big result for us and we want to continue fighting until the end, and to continue to win the match," Henderson said to Fotmob.
"It was a different type of test for us and I think we succeeded very well. We must continue to believe, maintain our confidence and win as many matches as possible.
"We knew it would be a difficult game. It was very hot, so we knew it would be difficult but, to be fair, it was the same for both teams," he added.
The last time Liverpool won the domestic competition was in the 1989/1990 season. At that time the top competition in England was still called Football League First Division or Division One.
Liverpool will now face already-relegated Huddersfield Town in their Premier League away game on Friday, and after that Jurgen Klopp's men go to Camp Nou to face Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals.
