It has been reported that James Milner insists Liverpool can finish in the top four.
The Reds are aiming to respond to a hugely disappointing last campaign by returning to the Champions League.
And asked if the top four is a closed shop, Milner said: “Two years ago Liverpool nearly won the title, so it’s not that closed.
“It’s hard for every team in the Premier League to get in the top four – it is so hard to win just one game. It is tough and to go and win the Premier League is even harder.
“But everything is there for us to be successful – the ground the fans, the manager, the players – everything is there and Liverpool FC is used to being successful.
“Being here and seeing the quality here, everything’s there for us.”
