Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side are capable of finishing second in the Premier League.
Their 1-0 win at Swansea on Monday night left them fifth, two points off a Champions League spot, but also just four points behind second-placed Manchester City who lost 1-0 at Burnly Saturday.
“Manchester City’s result at the weekend gives us an opportunity to finish second,” Rodgers told reporters.
“Our mentality, the run and confidence we have at the moment we’re just going to take that into every game and see where it takes us.”
Liverpool take on fourth-placed Manchester United on Sunday and Rodgers believes their momentum could take them higher.
“We’ve put ourselves in a great position,” Rodgers said. “There is still a lot of work to go so we’ll recover now and get ready for the weekend.
“The target is to finish as high as we can. Everyone talks about fourth but it’s the same every year for me. We do the best we can do.”
“We’ve clawed our way slowly back into it,” Rodgers added. “We knew it was going to take time being so many points behind, but to get back to this level of consistency is very, very impressive.
“We’ve still got a lot of work to do, but we’re on the right pathway.”
