The Reds play against Swansea City on Monday evening, and will need a victory in order to keep in touch with Manchester United and Arsenal before they take on the Red Devils next weekend.

They also have matches against the Gunners and Chelsea before the season is out, making their task even harder.

However, the Northern Irishman believes his players are ready for the road ahead: “We have 30 points to play for, so I am guessing it will be another 23 points. That is how competitive it has been this year. We have won nine out of 11 in January and February, it has been a great run but now we have to be focused on these last 10 matches.”

He added: “Everything counts. We have to be aggressive in our game and now we have to nail it in the last 10. I know the players are focused on that.”

The 42-year-old has a tough decision to make on Monday, with Steven Gerrard coming back to full fitness. The team has played well without their talismanic skipper, looking more balanced than they had before. However, it would be a big call to leave out the club legend.
