Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana has warned Manchester United that the race for the top four isn’t over with only four points separating the two sides after Manchester United’s 1-0 home defeat to West Brom, The Liverpool Echo reports.
Steven Gerrard’s late header handed the Reds all three points against relegation threatened Queens Park Rangers, and results over the weekend may have kept their Champions League hopes alive.
Following the defeat to Hull City last week, it seemed as though Brendan Rodgers’ side would amble towards the end of the campaign, but their season remains alive.
Manchester United travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday before hosting the most in-form side in the Premier League in Arsenal, and Lallana is sure that Louis van Gaal’s men will drop points.
“It’s not over yet,” Lallana warned.
“We can still finish in the top four but we need to take maximum points now. We’ll keep fighting right to the end. We all know what can happen.
“United have some tough games to play and I am sure they will drop more points.”
Liverpool’s fixtures are hardly straightforward either, as they travel to try and spoil Chelsea’s title party as the Blues prepare to lift the Premier League title in front of their fans.
Playing after their arch rivals will make the task clearer for Liverpool when they eventually kick-off at Stamford Bridge.
