1 Riera - Reds are confident on Wed Mar 25, 2009 12:29 pm

Liverpool winger Albert Riera says confidence is growing in the camp that they can beat Manchester United to the Premier League title.

The Reds have breathed life into their faltering title challenge by closing the gap on United to one point.

Liverpool have beaten United and Aston Villa in their last league outings and Riera believes Rafa Benitez's men are finding the form at the right time to pile the pressure on the leaders.

"Liverpool are playing really, really well in this moment," Riera told Sky Sports News.

"The season is really, really complicated and you have to play well and the reality is you have to play ten months at the highest level and sometimes it is very, very difficult.

"For example we started really well, we were on the top of the table. After December and January we had some problems making a lot of draws at home but not losing.

"I think we were just not playing really well and the other teams wanted to beat who was top of the table that we were before.

"Now we are in a different position, but in a great position to fight for the title.

"We are one point behind Manchester United and we are really confident that this is the most important time."

Riera believes the pressure is on United after losing their last two games and he insists Liverpool will fight to the end to try and bring the championship back to Anfield.

"The feelings on the pitch are really well and we are in a great situation to fight and when you are behind somebody I think the pressure is for the other team," added Riera.

"Of course we have to wait as they are still in front of us, but we have a lot of confidence in ourselves and really good feelings.

"They are one point in front of us and have to play one match more than us as well, but the next two months we have a lot of important matches in the Premier League and Champions League, matches with a lot of pressure and we will be there waiting that they will not win every single match.

"We have to win every single match and I promised a long time ago we would fight for title and this is the promise we can do because to fight is compulsory and we will see at the end.

"We have a lot of confidence, a lot of good feelings and we will see what happens at the end of the season."
