Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan has revealed his teammates are dreaming of winning the Premier League title this season.

Brendan Rodgers' men registered a 3-0 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium in their last league fixture. The result has seen the Reds climb up the table as they are second with 59 points from 28 games, trailing league leaders Chelsea by four points.

Flanagan has made 13 appearances in the Merseyside club's back four. With injuries to Glen Johnson and Jose Enrique, the 21-year-old has started at right-back while covering for Enrique in the left-back position in the Spaniard's long-term absence due to injury.

Liverpool have lost only one league game at Anfield and are yet to host Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham. Flanagan claims the confidence in the squad is high and he believes the Reds are in a position to face any opponent with their current form.

"Nobody really talks about [the title] much, but it's definitely something that's in my mind and it's probably in the other players' minds as well," Flanagan told talkSPORT.

"But we're just taking every game as it comes, we'll keep pushing on and hopefully keep getting three points. If we're still in this position with five games to go I think we're in with a big shout.

"Our home form has been terrific this year, and with three big games at home still to come [against Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham] I think the advantage is on our side. They'll be tough games but our confidence is high at the moment, we're scoring a lot of goals in every game and we're ready to take on anyone," he said.

Meanwhile, the England U21 international heaped praise on Liverpool's attacking trio of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling for their impressive form this season.

"When you've got Suarez and Sturridge up front, and Raheem Sterling as well, it doesn't get much better than that, they're the best in Europe at the minute, we know we're going to score goals with our strike force," Flanagan explained.

"Luis is a top, top player. Every day in training he's just hungry for it, he always wants to do that bit extra, he doesn't want to miss a minute on the pitch," the fullback concluded.
