The Australian attacker has swiftly settled into life at Anfield since his summer switch from Leeds United and he remains confident of securing silverware in his debut season on Merseyside.
Liverpool have lost four of their opening 11 fixtures in the league and already languish 13 points behind leaders Arsenal.
But Kewell is adamant The Reds are not in an impossible position to come back and claim the Premiership crown and that the team's form is gradually improving.
"The title race is not cut and dried just yet," affirmed Kewell to The SP. "We may still have a say in things.
"We are getting things together slowly and there's a lot more to come from us. Just wait and see.
"We can compete with them but it's all about how we do on the day.
"We should have won at least three more matches but didn't. It's still early days in the season and there have been a few clubs who have won titles from our present position so we'll see what happens."
Ahead of Sunday's powderkeg showdown between Liverpool and arch-rivals United, Kewell remains convinced he made the right choice in spurning the overtures from Old Trafford.
He added: "You have to respect United and what they have achieved but I'd do the same again.
"All the clubs who were interested in me were told what is important to me in terms of my family, my football and financially.
"Liverpool came back to us before anyone else. I was impressed with the set-up there and when I met Gerard Houllier we just clicked.
"From the moment we talked I knew they were the club for me."
