Liverpool’s influential midfielder Philippe Coutinho has admitted that following their thrashing at Arsenal over the weekend, FA Cup glory is the only thing that can salvage their season, according to The Mirror.
The Anfield club travel to Blackburn on Wednesday evening to for their FA Cup quarter final replay, in a bid to save a season on the brink of disaster.
With seven points now between the Reds and the final Champions League qualification spot, their manager Brendan Rodgers admitted that it would now be tough to get into the top four.
Having said that, Liverpool are still in the hunt for a trophy this season, with a Wembley FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa for the side which can come out on top in the replay.
The Brazilian, who has put in some impressive performances so far this season, refuses to give up and insists that finishing fifth and winning the FA Cup could still be classed as a good season.
He said, “We have to pick our heads up and keep believing. We have to keep going for fourth. We have more games to come and lots of things can still happen.
“Of course, winning the cup would save our season. It is very important for us to have that as an objective.
“It would be a successful season to finish fifth and win the cup, but we want to be in the Champions League. That is our primary objective.”
