Liverpool can still finish fourth, says Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers still believes his team can finish in the top four of the Premier League, according to the Mail on Sunday.

With 12 league games to go, the Reds currently sit in ninth position in the league table - 12 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

But Rodgers believes that Liverpool can bridge that gap while it remains mathematically possible to do so, starting with a win over Swansea City on Sunday which would see them leapfrog Michael Laudrup's side to go seventh.

Stating that his previous comments about Champions League qualification were taken out of context, Rodgers said: "For me, I will always say that something is possible if it's mathematically possible. Say, for example, we won 10 of our last 12 games then that would take us close to fourth place. While there's a chance I have to retain my optimism."

"So while we haven't given up, we also know it is going to be very difficult. I don't want to be hung out to dry as a fool. The reality is, it's still there because the points mean it is still achievable.

Liverpool have not played in Europe's top competition since the 2009/10 campaign, where they were eliminated at the group stage.
