Liverpool are in a very good position in the race to secure a top-four finish, according to Kenny Dalglish.

The Reds are currently two points clear of fifth-placed Everton after a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

You have to play one game at a time but they are in a very good position at a good time

Liverpool face Premier League leaders Arsenal this weekend, and Dalglish reckons the Reds have a big advantage with all their top-four rivals except Manchester United facing daunting trips to Anfield.

“Liverpool are in fourth spot right now and someone has to come and take it off them because they are not going to give it up,” Dalglish said.

“They are two points better off than the team below them [Everton] and they have a massively better goal difference.

“They have all the big teams apart from United to come to Anfield, and as the team immediately below them found out last week they are pretty awesome at Anfield.

“You have to play one game at a time but they are in a very good position at a good time.”

Dalglish praised Liverpool’s strike partnership Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, adding that the pair will be vital in the final months of the season.

“They have great individual ability and they sacrifice their individual talents for the benefit for the team and you cannot ask for any more than that,” Dalglish added.

“They just have to perform between now and the end of the season.

“If you score a lot more goals than you lose it is a good habit.

“Because they are attack-minded they might lose more goals than they would like to do, but there is no-one can be disappointed with the amount of points Liverpool have got so far this season.”
