Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that their top four hopes could be over after their 0-0 draw at West Bromwich Albion.
Boaz Myhill denied Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson while Jordon Ibe hit the bar as Liverpool improved after the break.
Rodgers conceded they need a faultless finish.
He said: “It’ll be very difficult, I felt of the six games we certainly needed to win five at least so now we have five to go and we’ll have to look to win them to give ourselves a chance.
“You never know what happens above you, that’s the thing with football, but what you have to do is make sure you keep the pressure on.
“This is a difficult place to come, Tony’s teams are strong, we have got a point and now we look to our game in hand in the week (against Hull) and look to get three points there.”
