Gerrard eyes strong finish
Steven Gerrard has urged his Liverpool teammates to use Sunday’s 3-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur as a springboard to European qualification.
The Reds came from behind to beat Andre Villas Boas’ in form side, and move to within two points of fifth place Arsenal, and seven behind a Champions League spot.
The Liverpool captain told the Daily Mail of his hopes for a strong end to an up and down season, stating that the club “don’t belong in seventh, eighth or ninth position”.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Pepe Reina is likely to be fit for Saturday’s trip to Southampton.
The Spaniard missed out at the weekend with a calf problem, with Brad Jones deputising.
Elsewhere, Sky Sports have reported that the club are ready to offer a contract to Hungarian defender Kristof Polgar.
The 16 year old had two spells on trial earlier in January and February, impressing the clubs coaching staff.
If Polgar signs, he will join compatriots Peter Gulacsi and U21 captain Krisztian Adorjan at Anfield.
Finally, press in France and Italy are reporting that the Reds are once again interested in moving for France international Jeremy Menez.
The 25 year old midfielder was linked with the club before he signed for Paris Saint Germain in 2011, where he has scored 14 goals in 75 appearances.
