Wijnaldum hopeful to see Liverpool in the Premier League's top-four

Mon 01 March 2021 | 11:16

Liverpool got back to winning routes after defeating Sheffield United, yet are still a long way from safety to get a Champions League place.

Georginio Wijnaldum

concedes Liverpool are counting on the odd "slip" from those above them to get in the top-four UCL qualification this season. 

The reigning Premier League champions have been thumped down from their strong position this season, with a disastrous run of injuries plotting against them. 

The run of four back-to-back defeats for the Reds was broken against Sheffield United; however, Jurgen Klopp's team stays 6th in the

Premier League

standings, and they are fighting for the

Champions League

's qualification spots. 

Asked by Liverpool's 

official website

 on the importance of getting back to winning track, Wijnaldum said:

"That's what we have to do if we want to finish in the top four. We have to put a run together and just hope the teams above us slip.

"We can only control our own performances so we have to look at it game by game, give everything and try to win the games.

"I think it's a good thing if you win a lot in a row, but I think this is a good one to stop the losses that we have had before.

"I think this is really good for the team and it gives a good feeling again [ahead of] the next game and also [lifts] our confidence."

The Anfield outfit went to Bramall Lane amidst their most exceedingly awful run of Premier League structure since 2002. But they managed to win the game 2-0 thanks to Curtis Jone's strike and Kean Bryan's own goal.

Liverpool are as yet two points behind the best four; however, the defining moments are yet to come for Liverpool, with a home fixture against



Klopp will be confronting the newly appointed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, with his key players beginning to edge their way back into the squad for Liverpool at an essential phase of the 2020-21 term.
