The Reds currently sit second in the table with 80 points, 6 points behind league leaders Manchester Utd, who could win the title with a draw at home to Arsenal tomorrow.
And Benitez wants his players to continue their winning streak, whatever the result of the title race.
He told reporters, “It’s always important to have some targets. We always have to think positive. We need to get three points in our game and if we can still fight for the title, then we will still fight, but if not, then we will fight for second.
“For us, 80 points is really good – 82 is our best ever total in the Premier League. It would be fantastic to match that, although to finish with 86 points would be much better.
“I am pleased because we have been more consistent. It’s very positive and good for the future.
“We will try to do our job in our remaining games and see what happens.”
