Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has chosen to focus on the positives this evening despite the Reds exiting the Champions League.

The Reds went out of the competition after Fiorentina’s 1-0 victory over Lyon in Italy, despite beating Hungarian side Debrecen 1-0 in Budapest.

Despite the disappointing news, Benitez is happy with the win and is adamant his side will be back playing Champions League football next season by finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

He said, “We had to do our job today. Our job was to win and we won but we couldn’t control the other game.

“To win today was the only thing we could do and we played well, with four or five clear chances.

“The main thing is to be ready for the next match, we have an important game on Sunday.”

“I am 100 per cent sure we will finish in the top four. The team will play well when all the players are available so I am sure we will finish in the top four.”
