Jordan Henderson insists Liverpool deserve to win silverware this season and says his team-mates still believe they can end the club's 29-year wait for the league title.
Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League on Saturday after a dramatic late goal from Divock Origi gave them a 3-2 win over Newcastle.
The Reds have lost just once in the league this season and are now two points clear of title rivals Manchester City, who face Leicester on Monday Night Football.
Club captain Henderson is hopeful Liverpool will have something to show for their impressive form at the end of the campaign.
"It is big moments every week and we have kept this race going right to the last game and you never know what can happen in football," he said.
"We just focus on winning games and we'll just see what happens. We have given everything all season.
"We deserve something at the end of it, we've just got to keep going, keep fighting right to the last minute and see what happens.
"It comes from the belief in the squad. We have great belief in each other no matter who plays or who comes on.
"Obviously we weren't happy with the result [in Barcelona], but we still got belief from the performance we put in over there so it kept us in the right frame of mind to perform again.
"It just shows the character and belief we have in the team to keep going and take it to the last game."
Liverpool will look to overturn a 3-0 deficit when they face Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final second leg at Anfield on Tuesday.
Henderson believes Liverpool can produce another memorable comeback to reach a third consecutive European final.
"We're enjoying the challenge. We're enjoying every week fighting and performing and playing the way we're playing," he said.
"I couldn't have asked any more of the lads. Everyone has been fantastic. It's one more game to come in the Premier League and hopefully not just one more in the Champions League.
"It will be difficult on Tuesday, we just have to perform like we can, finish on a high and you never know what will happen.
"We're not stupid, we know it's a massive task and I'm sure everybody expects that Barcelona will advance. For us, it's about performing again at Anfield and giving everything again in the game and trying to win.
"We can have no regrets. There are still at least two games to go and we need to focus on them."
