Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes in their top four chances.

Rodgers insists closing a nine-point gap on fourth-placed Tottenham is tough but not insurmountable, particularly as they face many of their closest rivals at Anfield.

"We have nine points difference but we can do it, there is no question about that," he said.

"It is a lot of points to make up but we will fight and accept the challenge in front of us.

"We have had a lot of tough games and we have a lot of what we would consider our big rivals for those (Champions League) positions to play at home.

"Our form at home is getting better, we are scoring goals and are defensively strong so we sense a real opportunity.

"I believe if we continue to play how we have been and retain that focus and mentality we have a terrific chance.

"It is going to be very tough but it is not something which is impossible."
