Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher says there is still a belief that the team can still catch up with fifth place Tottenham and steal a route into Europe.
The Reds are currently four points behind the North London club, having played two games left and the teams meeting in the penultamate game of the season.
“There have been a few times where we thought we can catch Spurs, then a couple of times when we lose a game that we can’t – now after these last two games we probably think we can,” said Carragher.
“We have now got two homes games to come, but the best thing is not to worry about Tottenham and just worry about ourselves, then see at the end of the season where we come.”
And Carragher believes the summer will bring about more good fortune, expecting a good strengthening of the squad in the transfer market.
“We had a bad start to the season, but there has been a progression towards the end, but of course it is still not good enough for Liverpool Football Club,” he added.
“We will be looking to build the team up. We did fantastic business in January and I am sure they will be looking to do the same again in the summer because while we are on a good run and there is a feelgood factor about the place, we still all realise that being fifth, sixth or seventh is still not good enough for Liverpool.”
