Liverpool legend Steve McManaman has called on the Reds to “close the gap” on the other top clubs in the Premier League, adding the side should exert effort and “drive forward”.
McManaman has played for Liverpool from 1990 to 1999, appearing in a total 364 matches for the club and scoring 66 goals along the way. From there he had stints at Real Madrid and Manchester City.
"We know that we have fallen behind other sides in recent years, so all we want as fans is to close the gap”, McManaman said to Liverpool’s official site. "All we want to see at the moment is progression.
"The performances against the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United have been really strong. But then draws at home against West Ham or away at Reading, have hurt us.
"We just need to try and drive forward to a level where, 80 per cent of the time, we are putting these performances in and getting the points”, the former England international continued.
With four games left to play in the season, the Merseyside giants are currently seventh in the Premier League table on 51 points, five points adrift of rivals Everton, who are in sixth place.
