Gerrard backs Liverpool for 2017-18 success

The reds veteran Steven Gerrard believes "success is around the
corner" for Liverpool
if they manage to improve their record against the smaller teams.
Jurgen Klopp's men finished fourth in the Premier League table in
2016-17, a massive 17 points behind champions Chelsea.
They impressed against the top teams, though, as they remained
unbeaten against their top-six rivals and Gerrard is confident they
are on the right track.
"We have got a fantastic manager at the helm. I think Liverpool are
very, very close," Gerrard told BT Sport.
"If you look at the statistics in the top six, they are the best team
in terms of head-to-head.
"Liverpool know where they need to improve and it is the consistency
against the teams that are maybe in the bottom half of the table, the
teams that sit narrow and compact and are difficult to break down.
"Hopefully we can get the two or three pieces of the jigsaw that are
missing. I am really confident Liverpool can keep moving forward and
success can be just round the corner."
