Liverpool legend Ray Houghton believes a top four finish is not out of reach.
Nine points currently separate Brendan Rodgers' side from the top four and Champions League qualification, and Houghton considers the competition to be wide open.
"The next few matches will show us exactly where they are.
"I'd love to see them up there competing for a top four position. In the middle of November, I actually thought there was a chance.
"If you looked at their run of games, they only had Tottenham who were a top-four side to play - and I felt if Liverpool could have a consistent run they'd be close to the top four.
"They're not too far away.
