Redknapp believes that being in the top four is the best result Liverpool can achieve this season.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes that given

Liverpool

's situation, the top four finish in the Premier League will be a great achievement for them.

The defending champions are facing an injury crisis this season, and Jordan Henderson has recently been added to their injury list. The England midfielder, who underwent knee surgery, will be out of action until April. Liverpool are currently sixth in the table and with 13 games left to go, Klopp's side will dropping further if Everton win over Aston Villa. They have lost 6 of their last 9 games, as many as they have lost in their last 100 games.

"Teams have found a way,"

Redknapp told

Sky Sports

.

"When West Brom came to Anfield, they sat back and let Liverpool get crosses into the box and because they haven't got that focal point of a big striker - you end up crossing the ball for the sake of it. 

"Liverpool have struggled, especially when they go a goal behind, to find the answer. 

"It will come, of course it will come, but right now everything Liverpool do feels difficult, when you're in a team struggling for form, even the basics are not quite happening. 

"They might not finish top four. It wouldn't be a surprise - it's actually more of a surprise if they did finish top four in the form they're in. 

"I don't know what they're going to end up with as their centre-back pairing at the moment. Henderson [being out] is terrible news. They're not a team who can keep going through these partnerships.  

"There's nothing to be scared of about Liverpool right now. This isn't a short fix. Liverpool's results up until the end of the season are going to be up and down."
