Anfield defender acknowledges club’s fate out of their hands.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has admitted that the club are relying on other teams to do them a favour if they are to qualify for Europe next season according to ESPN.

The centre back is due to retire at the end of the season but is keen to help his side secure European football before deciding to hang up his boots.

But Carragher has admitted that the club’s fate is no longer in their hands if they are to secure a Europa League qualification spot.

Brendan Rodgers men have been in improved form recently but still find themselves sat in just 7th place in the Premier League.

They currently sit five points off Arsenal in fifth with the Gunners enjoying the added benefit of having a game in hand.

Four of Liverpool’s remaining seven games are at Anfield and Carragher believes the team just need to focus on picking up as many points as they can between now and the end of the season.

Liverpool know that sixth place is unlikely to provide a Europa League place this season as the place is likely to go to the winners of the FA Cup semi-final tie between Wigan and Millwall. One of those teams will take the Europa League spot either by winning the trophy or as runners up should Chelsea or Manchester City win but qualify for Europe through their Premier League finish.
