Tim Sherwood backs Liverpool to challenge for Premier League title

Juergen Klopp's ( above ) Liverpool take on Newcastle United on Saturday after fourth-placed Tottenham host Huddersfield Town at Wembley.

"From a point of view of second, I would say just United".

For a number of reasons, I think it would be good for the game if Liverpool and Tottenham secured top four finishes as along with City, they are the only sides trying to play football every week. When I was at Arsenal, Seaman and Lehman kept us in games, they didn't make mistakes at the wrong time.

Having contributed to most of the Red Devils' season, the centre-back believes that they should always aim for the highest but that second place is the bare minimum. I, for one, look forward to seeing what goal celebration Roberto Firmino chooses to do when he scores the first goal.

"I think being able to beat a rival, it's nearly like a six-pointer because of how close we are", Smalling said of the Chelsea win. After beating West Ham 4-1 last Saturday, he said: "Second is one of our targets".

"You've got to keep going", the skipper is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.

YOU can watch this match live on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event, with coverage starting at 3.30pm.

Most of the North Koreans against the nuclear programme: US Survey
The North Korean spokesperson said, "It would neither beg for dialogue nor evade the military option claimed by the U.S.". While North Korea talks peace, it appears to be preparing for war, a situation South Korea and the US understand as well.

However, Chelsea No. 1 Thibaut Courtois insists they have the quality to rise up from fifth to grab a Champions League spot.

"It stays the same, it is tough", Courtois told the club's website.

Speaking after the 2-1 loss to top-four rivals United last Sunday, he said: "For the second, third and fourth spot there are five teams, so it will be hard until the last match of the season".

"But I think we have enough quality as we saw on Sunday and we showed it against Barcelona".

Ray Palour is backing Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur to finish in the top four ahead of Chelsea FC.

Liverpool fans were hoping Spurs would drop points at Crystal Palace on Sunday and they very almost did, yet the image of the Premier League is tarnished when we see the kind of tactics used by Eagles boss Roy Hodgson succeeding.
