Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is targeting at least four points from the final three games of the Europa League group stage.

The Reds currently sit top of Group K – two points ahead of Napoli and Dutch side Utrecht – both of who they are still to play at home, as well as an away trip to Steaua Bucharest.

Hodgson said, “We’ve got two home games now. I think if we can get four more points we’ll be pretty much secure for a place in the next round,” before adding with little optimism, “I can see the other games being tight.

“On paper it looked like an even group. We got one of the tougher groups with Napoli, Steaua and Utrecht but we’ve done what we’ve needed to do.”

The Reds boss says he will field a strong side against the Italians, despite Chelsea travelling to Anfield on Sunday. “”We’ll have a strong team out on Thursday, we won’t rest too many.”

Liverpool vs Napoli gets underway at 8.05pm on Thursday 4th November.
