Flanagan admits Liverpool have top spot on their minds

Liverpool young gun Jon Flanagan insists the club is determined to make their way to the top of the English Premier League.

The Reds currently sit second in England's top flight and are seven points behind league leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.

Although it is a major goal of the Merseyside club to finish in the top four this season and subsequently qualify for the Champions League, 21-year old Flanagan has made it clear that bridging the gap with pole position is currently at the forefront of the players' concentrations.

"It's on my mind and I think it's on a lot of the lads' minds that we could be up there at the end, but our priority was top four and if we can push on I'd be delighted with that," he told ITV.

Right-back Flanagan, who has made 13 Premier League starts this season, also admitted that he now feels extremely comfortable in Brendan Rodgers' first team.

"I'm feeling more confident now I've had a run of games," he added. "Maybe last year I didn't feel like part of the squad but now I'm in the team and having a good run so I'm feeling a lot better and more confident."
