Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy believes that his side have the capability to kick on up the table in the second half of the season, The
The Welsh international has been in good form recently for Liverpool in what has been a tricky month and a half. The Reds have come through a busy Christmas period and January still in the Carling Cup and the FA Cup, as well as hunting for a top-four finish in the league. Those eight games coincided with the absence of Uruguayan international Luis Suarez, who was banned after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra. Bellamy has really stepped up since Suarez was on the sidelines and the 32 year old has led from the front to help the Reds into a favourable position.
Bellamy is now the team’s leading scorer with nine goals and also picked up the club’s Standard Chartered player of the month award for the second successive month. The 32 year old is looking forward to the rest of the season and believes that after such a tough month, Liverpool have the confidence to get into the top four. The Reds take on Manchester United at Old Trafford this Saturday and Bellamy is expected to maintain his place from the 0-0 draw with Tottenham on Monday night.
‘It’s been a tough month for us, but fortunately, we’ve come through it and going into February, we’re in good shape. We had eight games in the space of three or four weeks and the squad’s been tested. We’ve got a chance to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals if we beat Brighton, we’re in the final of the League Cup, we’re four points off fourth and have a fully fit squad. We have a good chance to up the charge and end the season on a real positive note’, Bellamy said reports.
