Graeme Souness: I’d take this as a Liverpool fan right now

The former Liverpool captain believes a top-four finish would be a good result for the Reds this season

Graeme Souness says he would be content with a top-four finish for Liverpool ahead of their trip to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit have failed to win their last three games in all competitions following stalemates with Sunderland in the Premier League and League Two side Plymouth in the FA Cup third round.

Liverpool lost 1-0 to Southampton in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final on Wednesday night after Nathan Redmond’s first-half winner at St Mary’s.

While Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in disappointing form in recent weeks, Liverpool have still managed to pick up 13 points from their last five Premier League games.

The Reds started the weekend in second place in the Premier League table and five points adrift of current leaders Chelsea.

However, ex-Liverpool captain Souness stated that he would settle for a top-four finish right now ahead of their short trip to bitter rivals Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

“Right now, as a Liverpool supporter, I’d be taking top four, but I think if they go to United and turn them over, their tails will be up, the momentum will be with them, and then anything is possible,” Souness told Sky Sports.
