An impressive win at Old Trafford, a defeat for Chelsea and, on paper at least, a favourable run-in. Things are looking good for Liverpool right now in the chase for a top-four finish.
Thursday’s impressive 4-2 win against Manchester United means they are four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with a game in hand.
Liverpool’s remaining fixtures see them face three sides with nothing to play for. They are away to already relegated West Brom on Sunday before travelling to Burnley on 19 May and then hosting Crystal Palace in their final game on 23 May.
With Chelsea and Leicester – two sides currently above the Reds – both yet to play each other, are Jurgen Klopp’s side now in pole position to clinch a Champions League spot?
