Liverpool legends feel club can still finish in the top four

Former Liverpool goal-machines, Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush, believe the Reds have what it takes to finish in the top four this season.

But Brendan Rodgers’ side’s chances of finishing in the Champions League spots took a blow after their latest 2-1 defeat to fellow challengers Manchester United.

Liverpool are five points off the pace but Rush doesn’t think anything is done and dusted yet.
“I still think there’s a possibility,” he said speaking on Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday.

“It was difficult losing to Manchester United with that five-point gap but it was 10 points and now it’s five.”

Rush insists belief is key as fourth-placed United have a difficult run of game coming up before the end of the campaign.

“You’ve still got to believe, they have some tough games coming up. Arsenal and Chelsea may be difficult but if you’re looking to finish top four, then you have to be looking to win all of the other games.”

Fowler shared the view on United’s run in and feels it will help his former club in their bid to bring Champions League football back to Anfield again next season.

“Manchester United are playing well at the minute but their run of games is a little bit more difficult, if I’m being honest. So they definitely still can, but it will be more difficult than it was a week or two weeks ago.”

Will Liverpool still make the top four in the Premier League this season?
