Jamie Carragher urges Liverpool to wait for Chelsea or Leicester slip-up.
The Reds might not even qualify for the Champions League this season if they don’t finish top four in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are just five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and their only hopes for Champions League qualification is by winning this season’s competition.
Carragher told Sky Sports: ‘It feels like there’s going to be a real fight for the top four and the relegation places this season.
‘At this moment, I still don’t believe Liverpool will get in the top four – I think they will just miss out.
‘There’s still a bit of a gap but it was a massive result [against Wolves] for Liverpool, in terms of top four or potential top four.
‘A lot of teams around there lost points at the weekend. This puts them into sixth, still with a way to go.’
He explained: ‘Teams are playing each other, no-one will get maximum points.
‘It isn’t possible, because there are that many teams involved in this race for the top four.
‘That’s what Liverpool need to do: with four or five games to go, be in a position where they can basically jump if someone makes a mistake.’
