Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool must now be considered to be outsiders to finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.

The Reds suffered a blow to their hopes of Champions League qualification on Saturday when they slumped to a surprise 2-0 loss to Hull City to dent their top-four hopes.

The result caps a miserable start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have yet to taste victory in the Premier League since the turn of the year.

Liverpool are now a staggering 13 points behind leaders Chelsea and have it all to do if they want to guarantee Champions League football at Anfield next season.

And former Liverpool star Carragher admits that the Reds are now likely to be considered one of the outsiders to finish in the top four this season following their recent stuttering form.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “I imagine after the weekend they’ll be outside the top four and they will be outsiders now.

“People will keep saying they have played a lot of the top teams but in their next home games they have got Tottenham and Arsenal.

“You would expect them to do well in those games, they always do, but the majority of matches they have struggled in have come against teams in the bottom half of the table. That’s where they have major problems.”
