Defender Jose Enrique admits Liverpool have to be realistic about their chances of qualifying for the Champions League but they have not ruled out making a late run into the top four.

The Reds trail Arsenal by 10 points with 10 matches remaining and their hopes of overhauling that gap appear remote despite a morale-boosting 3-0 victory in the Merseyside derby on Tuesday.

"We have to be realistic about the Champions League and we are 10 points behind so it is going to be really hard. But we are still trying because the league hasn't finished yet," said Enrique.
