Liverpool have better chance of winning the Champion’s league than finishing fourth?
Liverpool fans have had to endure a roller-coaster of a season thus far, and with every game there seems to be a new ride, so how will it all end?
They stand three points behind Everton, who have a game in hand, Bolton have also overtaken them and now face a home game against the struggling Saints. You don’t have to be a mathematician to work out that qualifying for the next year’s champion’s league is no longer in Liverpool's hands.
Liverpool played some sensational football against Tottenham in the second half on Saturday and were really unlucky not to get the three points. However, at this stage of the season it is all about winning matches, and playing good football and not taking your chances is not a recipe for success.
I also thought that Rafa made a tactical blunder by playing three centre-backs, Paellegreno is not a left back in my view and he struggled to cope with the little threat, which Tottenham posed in the match.
Liverpool now have two potential tough away games in space of four days, nothing short of six points will be good enough to have a hope of putting pressure on Everton and Bolton.
By contrast, Liverpool are only three games away from winning the champion’s league. They just need to put in three solid performances, and they will achieve, what some would view as being impossible. I however believe that Liverpool have a better chance of winning the champion’s league than finishing fourth.
