Philippe Coutinho has urged Liverpool to build on their emphatic wins against Arsenal and Everton in the race for a top-four finish.

The Reds are currently fourth and four points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after a last-gasp winner in their most recent outing at Fulham.

We’re in a fairly good position at the moment but there are 12 matches to be played. There’s still much to happen and we’re hoping to keep up on this path

And Coutinho, who has scored three goals and made four assists this season, reckons Liverpool are in a strong position with 12 top-flight games remaining.

“We’ve reached the moment when we have to be fully concentrated and alert in all matches,” Coutinho told Liverpool’s website.

“The matches against Arsenal and Everton must be our reference so we can keep it up in all matches and sustain the same level until the very end.

“We want to be back in the Champions League and to be in contention for the title.

“The league is very difficult as it has big clubs. There’s massive competition in the league here, all matches are very difficult.

“We’re in a fairly good position at the moment but there are 12 matches to be played. There’s still much to happen and we’re hoping to keep up on this path.”
