Jamie Carragher rates Liverpool’s chances after Wolves win

Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has insisted that he does not believe Jurgen Klopp’s men will finish in the top-four positions on the Premier League table this season, despite their victory against Wolves on Monday night at Molineux.

Liverpool defeated Wolves, thanks to a first-half goal from Diogo Jota.

The Reds are currently in the sixth position on the Premier League table with five points behind fourth-place Chelsea after 29 games.

Asked about Liverpool’s Premier League top four chances after the game, Carragher said, “It’s been a freak, been really poor the teams they have lost to.

“But when we talk about teams at the bottom, it feels like there’s going to be a real fight for the top-four and the relegation places this season.

“At this moment, I still don’t believe Liverpool will get the top-four. I think they will just miss out.

“But when we talk about the teams at the bottom, someone has that little late run and makes other teams feel nervous, that is what Liverpool have to do in these next couple of weeks.

“Make Leicester feel a little bit nervous, Chelsea nervous, the positions they’re in now, and almost take this to the wire.

“I know other teams are playing each other. No one will get maximum points, it is impossible because there are many people involved in this race for top-four.

“There’s still a bit of a gap. It was a massive result for Liverpool tonight in terms of top-four or potential top-four. A lot of teams around that position lost points this weekend.

“It puts them into the sixth, still a way to go, but there’s still plenty of games to go. That’s what Liverpool need to do, with four or five games to go, be in a position where you can basically jump if someone makes a mistake.”

Liverpool’s next game is against Arsenal on April 4 after the international break.
