Liverpool Are NOT a Top Four Side Anymore
I think most Liverpool fans, not just me, would admit that Liverpool are, most likely, not going to get that coveted fourth spot this season. If you had to draw the line somewhere, I would say that the three teams that have a chance of getting Champions League football are Aston Villa, Man City and of course Tottenham. For me, it will be a similar story to last season. Aston Villa will probably be too far behind with a few weeks to go, and I honestly can't decide between my beloved Man City and Tottenham.
Of course with it being Liverpool v Villa tonight, that means a return to Anfield for old Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier. The current Villa boss enjoyed a successful time on Mersyside with the main achievement to his name being a cup treble in the 2000-01 season, winning the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup.
I'm expecting a close but entertaining game, and I have a feeling that Villa might just nick it, giving Villa and Houllier all three points. But no matter what happens tonight, for me, Liverpool still won't be able to get back into the top four.
I would love to hear any comments and predictions that you may have.
