EPL: Martin Skrtel rates Liverpool’s chances of finishing in top four, qualifying for Champions League


Former Liverpool defender, Martin Skrtel, has rated the Reds’ chances of finishing in the English Premier League, EPL, top four this season and qualifying for the Champions League.

Skrtel said that Liverpool’s string of matches after the international break would determine their fate if they finish in the top four this season.

Liverpool won the domestic cup double last term and were also in the mix to win the EPL and UEFA Champions League before falling short.

But this season, they have been far from their best as they have been eliminated from all cup competitions and face the risk of missing out on a Premier League top-four finish.

However, Skrtel believes Jurgen Klopp’s side will finish in the top four this season.

“In football you never only get good days, you have to take the bad days too,” Skrtel told The Athletic.

“This season isn’t as everyone wanted it to be. But there are three big games after the international break: Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal. That is going to be make or break in terms of qualifying for the Champions League. I still believe we can do it.”

He continued, “If we can perform like we did against [Manchester] United, we can finish in the top four.”
