Carragher sure of Liverpool top four credentials

Jamie Carragher insists that fourth place in the Barclays Premier League, and the Champions League football that brings, is a realistic possibility for Liverpool this season.

The Merseyside club ended a run of five matches without a win at the weekend, beating Wigan Athletic by 3-0. The win moves Liverpool up to 11th place, eight points behind 4th spot, currently occupied by West Brom.

Talking to the BBC, Carragher said: “Beside the top two, and even Manchester United lost on Saturday, a lot of teams are dropping points all over the place,” Carragher said.

“From our own point of view, we now want to kick on and make a challenge for that top four place because it seems that everyone is throwing it away.”

Carragher came on as a late sub for the Reds – a brace from Luis Suarez, and one from Jose Enrique gave them the three points.

Next up, Liverpool face Young Boys in the Europa League on Thursday, followed by Brendan Rodgers’ return to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea.
