Will Rafa be smugly stroking his chin when the final whistle chirrups at Anfield?

The Merseyside derby is mere hours away and Rafa Benitez has claimed that right now his priority is getting 4th place rather than succeeding in the Champions League – wouldn’t it have been nice if he had told the players this earlier in the season when they were aimlessly flapping around the league? Rafa’s claims that he is focussed on securing the 4th place Champions League spot before the mother of all six pointers. Rafa said:

‘More than anything at the moment we want to finish in the top four.
‘Of course we want to progress in the Champions League as well, but when you get to quarter-finals and semis in that competition you come up against quality teams who can knock you out. Ideally, we would like to make sure of fourth place first, and a win against Everton would make that task much easier.’

So will Rafa be smugly stroking his chin when the final whistle chirrups at Anfield?
