Suarez calls for Arsenal win to keep top four hopes alive

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has called on his team to get a positive result against Arsenal on Saturday to keep their chances of Champions League qualification alive.

The Reds currently occupy fourth spot in the Premier League after falling away from their table-topping spot on Christmas Day.

With manager Brendan Rodgers having already confessed that the title is not on the club’s radar, attention has now switched to guaranteeing a place in the top four.

League leaders Arsenal will venture to Anfield the weekend, and Suarez is hopeful that Liverpool can notch a valuable three points to give their ambitions a boost after their recent draw with West Brom:

“Arsenal are the leaders in the table and victory would be good for morale, give the whole squad an enormous injection and reduce the points difference at the top,” he is quoted by The Mirror.

“We didn’t have success at the Emirates [Arsenal won November’s reverse fixture, 2-0] so our objective now is to win and I believe we have that chance.

“It has been such a hard season. It’s rare that everything could be decided on the last day but we must keep going and to ensure that happens we need results against the other main candidates.”

Suarez’s future at Liverpool may hinge on Champions League qualification, with a move to one of Europe’s finest club sides beckoning if the Merseysiders cannot offer him a spot in the continent’s top club competition.
