Stan Collymore is tipping Liverpool to at least secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The Reds are currently eight games into Jurgen Klopp’s first full campaign in charge at Anfield following the German coach’s appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ successor in October 2015.

Klopp has been tasked with steering the Reds back into Europe’s elite club competition after they missed out on a top-four finish last season as they ended up eighth in the table and without a trophy.

Liverpool have earned plenty of praise for their recent performances and will be hopeful that they will be one of the main contenders for Champions League qualification come the end of the season.

And former Liverpool man Collymore is confident that the Reds have what it takes to secure a return to Europe’s elite club competition this term.

Writing in his column for The Daily Mirror, Collymore said: “A top-four finish [would represent success this season for Liverpool]. Could they win title? Yes. But in terms of what the minimum expectation is, bearing in mind the club have put so much faith in this guy — he has signed an extension to his contract already — top four and Champions League football for England’s most successful European club is an absolute minimum.

“If he finishes fifth I don’t care what any Liverpool fan says about the smile or the tempo, he was there to get them back to the top table of English football.”
