Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy is confident the club can qualify for the Champions League, despite three successive home draws in the Barclays Premier League.

The Reds have failed to beat newly promoted duo Norwich City and Swansea City, which preceded the stalemate with Manchester United.

But the club's away form has helped them keep pace with the top five, and Bellamy is still confident of reaching the top four, despite a recent wobble.

“We have slipped up a little bit in recent weeks, and this is no disrespect to Swansea, but if we have an ambition to finish in the top four, we have to win those types of games,” he said.

“But we do have the players here to reach the top four and get in the ­Champions League again. I feel this team will get stronger and stronger as the year goes on.”

He added: “Despite the results at home, there is a great atmosphere around the place, it’s very relaxed, but always with the view to getting into the ­Champions League next season."
