Liverpool boss believes finishing the league in the top-four is a big challenge.
are not performing good these days and with 40 points, they are currently standing sixth in the Premier League table.
For the first time since 1992, the Reds lost the Merseyside derby toEverton
at Anfield. Liverpool's consecutive defeats this season are unbelievable for the fans.
When Liverpool boss
was asked about the team’s top-four chances, he said:
“Big challenge, of course. You only have to look at the points; it’s not too far off but already it’s a distance.
“We don’t have to talk too much about that, the only thing we have to do is try to win as many games as possible and that’s what we’ll do.”
Former Liverpool star andSky Sports
has also talked about the Reds’ situation.
“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.”
“But they'll have to look at this as an exercise. It's not gone well for them but how can they do in the Champions League? Can they win the Champions League and upset the odds and do something incredibly special on that front?
“This isn't a short fix. Liverpool's results up until the end of the season are going to be up and down.
“They're going to have some good results because they've got Salah, Firmino and Mane to do incredible things but they're also going to have some really poor results, that is a fact. Because you can't change what's in front of you right now.
“Jurgen Klopp can't get a special formula or recipe to go, 'I'm going to change this, I'm going to be so bright and so clever and change it to a back three', it isn't going to change a thing.
“Klopp has got the hardest job at the moment because he hasn't got a partnership, none of them have played together, you've lost your captain for three months… he's got a really tough job.
“It will come, of course it will come, but just right now everything Liverpool do feels difficult. When you're in a team struggling for form, even the basics, simple passes, crosses, normally they'd find a man but they're not quite happening for them now. They have to get their confidence back.”
