Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard feels his club’s Champions League hopes are still alive despite being two points and a game behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
The Reds take on league leaders Chelsea this weekend in a match that could potentially determine the Premiership winner this season but Gerrard insists the team will not roll over and will fight to get a best possible finish to the season.
Gerrard told reporters that : “We have a couple of games left and the idea is to take maximum points and see if we can get into the Champions League through the back door,”
“If we take maximum points, who knows? The teams above us might slip up. All we have done is keep the pressure on.
“We won’t give up but it would be stupid of me to say this or that is going to happen – it’s important to be realistic.
“We are underdogs for fourth position but our fans also know we’ve got Everton breathing down our necks and we certainly don’t want them finishing above us.”
