Liverpool aiming for Champions League

Liverpool’s legendary manager and savior Kenny Dalglish is still confident Liverpool can challenge for a Champions League spot, despite a growing injury list and 9 point deficit from fourth placed Chelsea.

"We have got one or two problems but with only two league games in March, certainly from a league point of view, it gives us a lot of those niggles a chance to clear up,” Dalglish told Sky Sports.

"The players we put in there are well capable of doing themselves justice and doing the club proud and the players have to accept injuries are part and parcel of the game and put up with it."


Dalglish is yet to be offered a full time contract by Liverpool principal owner John W Henry, but his future with The Kop seems all but assured after the manager turned around Liverpool’s fortunes during the season. In October last year, Liverpool were in serious danger of relegation, and now they sit in sixth place, 11 points clear of the drop zone.

Dalglish puts this success down to the depth in the squad, and believes it will see them end the season in a favourable position. "Everyone in the squad is capable of playing in the first team.

"Those that haven't played as much are very important to us and their attitude in the games they have played in the past has been superb.

"We wouldn't expect any less, although we don't take it for granted.”

Liverpool can steal a spot in the 2011/2012 Champions League if they win 3 games where Chelsea drop at least 4, including their game in hand. Tottenham also present a challenge to the 18 time title winners. While it is a difficult feat, it isn’t impossible.

Dalglish is confident Liverpool will grow to be the successful club it once was. "When you look to a club and try to get success, the strength of what lies behind [the first team] and their application when they do get an opportunity is the important thing."
