Top-four finish achievable for Liverpool - Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho is supremely confident that Liverpool can produce a top-four finish this season.

The Reds currently sit fourth on 42 points which has them lying four behind third-placed Chelsea and one ahead of Merseyside rivals Everton in fifth.

It has been an impressive first half of the season from Brendan Rodgers' men and Coutinho feels they can maintain their recent form and push for a Champions League spot for 2014/15.

"We are quite confident. Our thought is to win every match and start every match doing our best in this battle, and we have to carry on this way," Coutinho told LFC TV.

"Our aim is to be within the first four places at the end of the season and we will try our best to keep ourselves up there.

"Here it is really different from other leagues, it is very competitive and sometimes you are leading but if you relax too much another team will overtake you quite quickly and you fall behind again. It is like a battle all the time."
