After Liverpool won 1-0 away to Swansea City, which was their fifth consecutive league win and stretched their unbeaten run to 13 games, manager Brendan Rodgers believes the Merseysiders can finish in the top-two of the Premier League this season, reports BBC Sport.
Liverpool have been in fine form in the second-half of the campaign, picking up 10 wins from their last 12 league games. They most recently beat Swansea City 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium, which continue their winning run in the division, while boost their chances of a top-four finish. But their manager is not only targeting Champions League football for next season, he’s also backing the Reds to finish ahead of Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.
With victories earned over Tottenham, Manchester City, Southampton in recent weeks, Liverpool have showcased title-winning form, but left themselves too much work to do to catch league leaders Chelsea in the table. Next season, they’ll be hoping to challenge for the league crown as they did in 2013/14, but Rodgers wants a top-two finish now they’re back in form in the English top-flight. He said: “Manchester City’s result at the weekend gives us an opportunity to finish second. Our mentality, the run and confidence we have at the moment we’re just going to take that into every game and see where it takes us.”
