Liverpool facing hell of a battle for top four, says ex-Arsenal midfielder
Ray Parlour reckons Liverpool will find it tough to finish in top four
Ray Parlour believes Liverpool are facing a “hell of a battle” to finish in the top four this season.
The Reds ended a three-game losing streak in the Premier League on Saturday as Liverpool edged to a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Anfield.
It is going to be very competitive at the end of the season
Brendan Rodgers’s side are five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United ahead of their clash against bottom of the table Leicester City on Tuesday.
And former Arsenal midfielder Parlour reckons the Reds are facing a tough fight from the likes of Everton, Spurs and United.
“They need to be in the top four again. Stability is so important,” Parlour told Sky Sports News.
“It is going to be tough. It is going to be a hell of a battle.
“You look at Manchester City and Chelsea; for me, they’ll be one and two.
“You’ve got Everton, Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United fighting for those last two places. It is going to be very competitive at the end of the season.”
