Michael Owen and Joey Barton react on Twitter to Liverpool win

Michael Owen says Liverpool must replicate their away form at home.

Liverpool made a mockery of anybody who felt they would struggle to beat Southampton - winning 6-1 away from home in the Capital One Cup quarter-final.

The thumping scoreline will be heard around the Premier League, and former Reds striker Michael Owen believes they can go onto contend for the title.

He suggests this is possible, but only if they fix their form at home, which has not been as electric as their recent away displays.

 Away from home this season Liverpool have the fifth best record in the Premier League.

They have taken 12 points from a possible 21, with three wins, three draws and just one loss, against Manchester United.

By comparison, their home form is not as bad as Owen suggests. Their record is the seventh best in the league, with three wins, two draws and two losses.

Burnley midfielder Joey Barton also commented on Twitter about the team's rapid turnaround in fortunes, putting it all down to new manager Jurgen Klopp.

Right now it appears as though Liverpool's players believe anything is possible, and if they can remain injury free and keep consistent over the next month, they will set themselves up in a strong position to achieve real success this season.
