Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has revealed there is still belief in the Reds’ ranks that they can finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.
With eleven games left, Liverpool sit eighth in the table and a substantial ten points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and eight off fifth-placed Arsenal.
The Reds appear to have a favourable run-in, but there are games still to come against Tottenham Hotspur (10th March), Chelsea (21st April), Newcastle (27th April) and Everton (4th May), which stand out as tests which will be crucial to determining where Brendan Rodgers’ men finish.
And Henderson revealed there is still confidence in the camp about ending the season in fourth.
"We’ve got 11 games left and want to succeed in those games. We’ve done well of late. I think we’ve been playing some good stuff – we’re still improving", he told his club’s official site.
"[To qualify for the Champions League] would be a massive achievement. We’ll give it our best shot. We know it will be difficult but we still believe we can do it.
"The coming games will be a good chance for us to showcase what we want to achieve."
Next up for Liverpool is the relatively short trip to face Wigan on Saturday, before Tottenham are the visitors to Anfield the following weekend.
