“It has to be for Liverpool (top four their aim despite win over Man City). It has to be. I still look at it now, and see the way Liverpool performed in that game, they can get on a run. “You can’t see Liverpool not being in the top four. I thought it was silly for people saying ‘oh, people are out of it now. He’s going to have to build and transition’. “Well, we saw what they could do to Man City there. A very good Man City side.”
Hence, it looks like Liverpool are finally getting back into their old groove. They are also starting to prove the people wrong with their wins against Rangers and Manchester City. Hence, they need to keep the performances going till the end of the season to compete for trophies.
