Jamie Carragher makes Liverpool top four admission

Jamie Carragher has backed Liverpool to finish in the top four this season despite their worrying start to the campaign.

The Anfield side have won just four of their first 12 Premier League games and are already eight points behind Newcastle, who sit bottom of the Champions League at the moment.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost back-to-back league games against Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, but the former Red Carragher still believes they will overtake Chelsea and Manchester United to qualify for Europe’s top competition.

“I think the North London clubs [Arsenal and Tottenham] they will both go in now, I really think so,” he told the Daily Mirror (via Metro).

“I have loved watching Arsenal, they have almost been my favorite team to watch this season.

“I think Liverpool will come before Chelsea and Man United and then the two north London clubs will be alongside Man City.

“But I think it will be a fight to the finish and as a Liverpool fan, if they offered me fourth place now, I would bite his hand off.

“I think Liverpool are in a good fight for that and could easily finish sixth. But I do think Liverpool will stay there and I think in that second half of the season we have to see the Liverpool of old at some point.

“When Liverpool go back to that, it will be too much for everyone else in this league except Manchester City. But if they don’t get back to that consistency, it’s going to be tough for them.”

Arsenal are playing well this season and they are the current pace setters in the league having won all but two of their 12 games.

It looks like the Gunners and Manchester City are likely to finish in the top four, meaning there are only two slots available for the likes of us, Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs to contend.

Newcastle are doing well, but the question is, can they continue this impressive form?

It is important to remember that we are only in November and we still have the World Cup at the end of this month, so there is still a long way to go.

There’s no denying that our start to the campaign has been mediocre, but with the hope that Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota will return to form in the new year and the opportunity to strengthen the team in January, there is no reason why this season may not be a successful one
