Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson has urged his teammates to fight for at least a second place finish this season, after proving victorious against Manchester City on Sunday, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
Brendan Rodgers side scored two sensational goals against the current English champions, with one of them coming from Henderson himself.
Having seen his squad struggling during the opening months of the league, Rodgers decided to make a number of big changes which has now helped the Reds reach fifth place.
The England international insisted that based on their current momentum, he sees no problem in picking up the necessary results to overtake City into second place, and secure Champions League football for next season.
“Listen, it’s always possible. The main thing to do would be to concentrate on ourselves as much as we can, keep the momentum going and see where it takes us really,” he said.
“We have just got to aim to win every game. I think we have got the ability to do that.”
They were knocked out of Champions League after failing to progress from the group stages, leaving their only hopes of qualification for the tournament lying with a top four finish.
The Reds will host Burnley on Wednesday in a league clash, before facing Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup quarter finals.
