THE Liverpool captain, Paul Ince, is refusing to give up on his team's Premiership title chances, even after Monday night's 1-1 Merseyside derby draw with Everton that left his side nine points behind the leaders, Manchester United.

Ince stressed they will not throw in the towel, following suit after his manager, Roy Evans, gave a similar assurance.

"What we must cling on to is the fact that we know we played well, as individuals and as a team,'' he said. "It's that belief we must carry with us as we go into the last 11 games."

Ince grabbed the face-saving equaliser to salvage the 1-1 draw against Everton at Anfield and believes Liverpool deserved to win.

He said: "Looking at the game we could have been three up in the first 10 minutes. Nobody can deny that. If any of those had gone in we would have kicked on and won.

"But they got one and then threw away a wonderful chance of a second before I scored. But, to be frank, for them to have had a 2-0 lead would have been very unjust.

"People will say we played well, and we did. But at the end of the day you must win your home games if you are going to win the championship. ''
