Andy Robertson has suggested Liverpool still have a shot at qualifying for the Champions League this season after a 2-0 win over Southampton by Ralph Hasenhuttl bolstered the club’s top four prospects.
The Reds overcame the visitors with one goal in each half, with Thiago Alcantara scoring a late long-range effort to double the lead established by Sadio Mane’s opener.
With six points separating us from an admittedly fluffy Leicester City (albeit with a game in hand on our side), we can certainly understand the reluctance of the players and the manager to entirely rule out a surprise arrival in the first four places announced. .
However, this will require absolute perfection on our part, especially since our fate is entirely in the hands of our rivals, with slippages always necessary.
