Liverpool legend Barnes: Top four up for grabs

Liverpool legend John Barnes feels a top four finish is up for grabs.

Barnes thinks Spurs and Liverpool are just two of the sides capable of securing Champions League qualification.

"It's the Premier League," he told LFC TV. "You look at Manchester United and Manchester City and, apart for City in the last month, they are the two consistent sides.

"Who is going to finish third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh? You're looking at Chelsea, who all of a sudden are not performing, and you're talking about Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and ourselves.

"Are we that far off Tottenham? Would it surprise you if Tottenham lost next week? Chelsea are the same. Arsenal are dropping points. Apart from Manchester United, everyone is - because it's a difficult league.

"I know the teams above us are going to drop points. You cannot say the top four are playing so consistently well that we've got no chance. What we have to do is put a run together."
