Liverpool caretaker manager Kenny Dalglish has lauded the squad’s comeback this season, from fearing relegation to sitting at sixth and pushing for qualification for Europe, and believes the Kop have achieved a lot this season.
"I still don't think sixth place is the position we actually want to be in, but credit to the players because there have only been two transfers out and two in, and the lads that have got us to where we are deserve great credit for it,” Dalglish told Liverpool TV.
"I don't think they could have done much more. I think they've done more than they possibly could.
"We've won some games maybe people thought we couldn't win and we've lost other games we thought we should win, but at the end of the day, as we keep saying, we will add up the points at the end of the season and see where we are."
While fans are desperate to see Liverpool qualify for Champions League once more, Dalglish believes that considering the rollercoaster ride the club has had this season, sixth place is definitely a positive.
"If we were to finish sixth it would be an achievement for the players that they have got that far in such a short space of time, but we just need to keep going and see what happens,” Dalglish said.
With seven games left to play and Manchester City to face this weekend, Liverpool have a tough run in, also facing Arsenal and Tottenham. But Dalglish is taking the match ups one game at a time, and concentrating on closing the five point gap between fifth placed Spurs and Liverpool.
"The Tottenham game is our second last match of the season but we are only looking as far ahead as Man City, because as we've always said the next game is the most important one and that's all we can concentrate on.
"Whatever happens between now and when we play Aston Villa, which is our last game, will dictate whether we are closer to Tottenham or further away.
"We will just put all our energy towards getting a result against Manchester City first."
