Liverpool can still achieve a top-four finish and qualify for the Champions League, according to captain Steven Gerrard.

There are only nine games left in the current Premier League campaign and, after edging a thrilling match against Tottenham on Sunday, Liverpool creeped into the top six for the first time under manager, Brendan Rodgers. 

The 3-2 victory over Spurs saw them overtake fierce rivals Everton for the first time this season and it means they are now only seven points off fourth-placed Chelsea and sit just two points behind fifth-placed Arsenal.

Liverpool have only lost two of their last ten league games and have picked up six wins along the way, winning their last three games against Swansea, Wigan and Tottenham. Along with the three consecutive victories, they have also managed to score 12 goals and conceded just twice.

The Merseyside club had a slow start to the season but have turned on the style since the new year, and club legend and captain Gerrard believes they can still pull-off the shock of achieving a top-four finish.

The midfielder told the Daily Mail: "Liverpool don’t belong in seventh, eighth or ninth place in the table.

"We want to be pushing on for the European places year after year.

"Hopefully it’s not too late but we will need to produce the perfect finish to sneak in through the back door."

Liverpool make their way to the south-coast on Saturday to play Southampton.
