Ray Parlour believes Liverpool are contenders for a top-four finish

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast, former Arsenal playmaker Parlour insisted that Liverpool are still contenders for a top-four finish.
“Liverpool will be looking at the top four,” Parlour said.
“They’ve got a game in hand on Manchester United. If they win it, they’re points behind Manchester United.
“They’ve got some big games but Jurgen Klopp will be demanding [more].”
Liverpool host bitter rivals Manchester United in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash at Anfield next Thursday.
