Graeme Souness believes Liverpool are still in a good position to finish in the top four ahead of Manchester United.

Manchester United moved to within three points of Liverpool thanks to a 2-0 win against Burnley after efforts from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney.

The Merseyside outfit suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Anfield on Sunday following Christian Benteke’s goals either side of half-time.

The Red Devils have played two games less than Liverpool in the Premier League, although Jose Mourinho’s side will take on Manchester City on Thursday night.

Manchester United have to make the trip to north London duo Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur before the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham captain Souness believes Liverpool are still in a decent position despite their shock loss to Sam Allardyce’s Palace side at Anfield.

“Manchester United have three tough away games,” Souness told Sky Sports.

“I don’t think they can win them all. It’s doom and gloom here right now but they’re in a good position because of the games they’ve got left. They’ve got to go again.”
