Jamie Carragher doesn’t think Liverpool will have what it takes to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season despite beating Wolves 1-0 on Monday night.
The Reds have won just two of their last eight Premier League matches and lost six games at home on the bounce – but the result against Wolves has moved them up to sixth in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
A Diogo Jota strike against his former club was enough for Liverpool to beat Wolves on Monday night with the result more important than the performance for Jurgen Klopp, who described the win as “three dirty points”.

However, their victory over Wolves has done little to convince Carragher that Liverpool can make the top four.
“Its been a freak, been really poor the teams theyve lost to,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “But when we talk about teams at the bottom, it feels like theres going to be a real fight for top four and the relegation places this season.
“At this moment, I still dont believe Liverpool will get the top four. I think they will just miss out. But when we talk about the teams at the bottom, someone has that little late run and makes other teams feel nervous, thats what Liverpool have to do in these next couple of weeks.
“Make Leicester feel a little bit nervous, Chelsea nervous, the positions theyre in now, and almost take this to the wire. I know other teams are playing each other. No one will get maximum points, its impossible because theres that many people involved in this race for top four.
“Theres still a bit of a gap. It was a massive result for Liverpool tonight in terms of top four or potential top four. A lot of teams around that position lost points this weekend.
“It puts them into sixth, still a way to go but theres still plenty of games to go. Thats what Liverpool need to do, with four or five games to go, be in a position where you can basically jump if someone makes a mistake.”
