1 Benitez - Win all eight on Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:34 am

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez wants his side to win all eight of their remaining Premier League fixtures as they look to overhaul Manchester United.

The Reds moved to within a point of the leaders after their 5-0 demolition of 10-man Aston Villa on Sunday, taking full advantage of nine-man United's shock 2-0 defeat at Fulham the previous day.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side remain odds-on favourites as they still have the benefit of a game in hand, but back-to-back defeats for the Old Trafford outfit have given Liverpool the confidence that they can end a 19-year wait for England's top-flight crown.

One concern for Benitez is that there is now a two-week gap before their next Premier League fixture, away to Fulham on 4th April, with international football forcing a break in the domestic campaign.

And he has urged his side to continue their recent momentum and focus solely on their own results, with no margin for error as the campaign draws to a close.

Confidence

Benitez said: "As far as the title chase is concerned, we just have to keep doing our job, we must not be concerned about United's results and how they are playing.

"If United do make mistakes, we must be ready, and that means carrying on doing what we are doing and winning points.

"We are playing well and they will see that we are playing well and trying to win every game.

"We have eight games left and every one must be won and be treated as a cup final.

"Certainly we must maintain this momentum and, when we are playing well, it just increases confidence.

"We now have an international break so the players must come back from that, re-group and start playing again just as we are at the moment."
