Rafa confident of finishing fourth in the Premiership

There is sunshine once more at Anfield after Liverpool demolished West Ham United 4-0 in midweek to go level on points with Everton as the race to finish fourth in the Premiership intensifies.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez now says that destiny is in their hands once more and that they do not need to rely on other teams to do them a favour. Rafa says:

We know it will be difficult the only thing is that it depends on us now.

It is in our hands so that is very positive and if we can keep winning we know we will be there.

Aston Villa, Blackburn are in form, City, Portsmouth and Everton also so clearly it will be difficult.

It is much better than before. We have been talking for a while about the game in hand so now we have three more points and we are really pleased with the situation and if we can keep winning in the end we will be in the position.

Indeed Liverpool are in red-hot form and they may as well rally in the last stretch of the Premiership season to snatch the prized fourth place that qualifies them for the Champions League. The Reds also have one foot into the last 8 of the competition this season too.
