Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez says his side's 1-0 win over Fulham has put pressure on Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title.
Yossi Benayoun scored a dramatic winner in the 92nd minute to send Liverpool top of the table by two points, although United have two games in hand.
Benitez said: "We know we are still in the title race. I think it puts a bit more pressure on Manchester United.
"They have experience and quality but they will be under pressure."
United play one of their games in hand on Sunday when they host Aston Villa and a win will see them regain the top spot in the Premier League.
But Benitez is delighted that Liverpool have ensured United will have to work hard to achieve it by taking three points from Craven Cottage.
We can 'steal' title - Benayoun
It had looked as though Liverpool were going to be frustrated by Roy Hodgson's side, particularly when they hit the woodwork four times in the first half.
But Benitez insisted he never gave up hope that the goal would come.
"We were creating chances so we were disappointed we could not score," the Spaniard told BBC Sport. "But to score the late goal we are really pleased.
"We were doing the right things all the time, it was just the finishing that needed to improve - and also their keeper was doing well. But if you are playing well you just have to keep going.
"We had confidence until the end, this team has belief that we will be able to score right at the end.
"We are playing with confidence and it's easier to play better when you have confidence. It is a positive cycle - you are playing well, you are creating chances, you are scoring goals, you are winning matches."
