Aurelio not giving up on league

Aurelio is hoping Manchester United will slip up in the title race

Liverpool defender Fabio Aurelio says his team-mates will "fight until the end" to win the Premier League title.

The Reds' 4-4 draw with Arsenal on Tuesday took them level on points with Manchester United having played two games more than the reigning champions.

"I think the same belief and hope we had on the pitch (against Arsenal) we have for the league title," said the 29-year-old Brazilian.

"We have to fight until the end and that is what we will do."

Manchester United are now in pole position to win their third Premier League title in a row.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side could even lose two of their remaining seven matches, subject to goal difference, and still be crowned champions.

We can change things if it's not going right so the belief now that everyone has is making the team more aggressive and more attacking

Aurelio says he is not ready to give up on his dream of winning the Premier League title just yet: "There has been a lot of difficult games for everyone.

"We have seen our games not being easy. We hope that Manchester United can struggle again with their opposition and we can guarantee we will fight until the end."

If Liverpool's title challenge is to be in vain, Aurelio believes the Reds can take positives from the recent run of high-scoring form, which has seen them take the scalps of Manchester United, Real Madrid, Aston Villa and score four away to Chelsea.

"The boss is always telling us 'high-tempo' and I think (the results have come) because of the confidence of the team.

"We have seen in most of the games that we can change things if it's not going right so the belief now that everyone has is making the team more aggressive and more attacking during the games.

"We like to score a lot of goals but we are not happy conceding," said Aurelio.
