Former Reds boss insists we must keep believing


    Former Liverpool boss has called on supporters and players to keep believing this is the year the club ends it’s 24 year wait for a league title.

    Brendan Rodgers saw his sides title hopes suffer a major blow when Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners at Anfield on Sunday.

    However, the Reds remain top of the table and know they can win the title if they win their remaining two matches, and Manchester City drop points in any of their three remaining matches.

    Evans told the clubs official website: Cr “I know everybody is disappointed – the fans, Brendan and the players – with the way it went on Sunday, but the fact is we are still not out of it.

    “We didn’t get the result we wanted but we still have a chance of winning the Premier League.

    “You’ve got to be positive on all sides; there are still two games to go for us and three for Manchester City, but all of the teams have showed this season that they are capable of dropping points.

    “City have it in their own hands but we always knew they were lurking in that position. I’m confident we will win our next two games and I believe 86 points will win it for us.”

    Crystal Palace are the next opponents for the Reds next Monday evening, and Evans believes Brendan Rodgers will start with an attacking line up, despite seeing his side fail to score in a match for the first time since November on Sunday.

    “If Daniel Sturridge is fit I think he will start against Palace but apart from that I don’t see any need to make a lot of changes,” the 65-year-old added.

    “What’s been good about us all season is we are attacking and that’s the way we play, so we’ve just got to stick to how we have played all season.

    “That’s what has made us what we are this season and it is great to watch.”

    The Reds will be hoping local rivals Everton do them a favour by taking points off Manchester City on Saturday evening, and Evans has backed the Blues to deliver against Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

    He added: “Everton have been fantastic this season under Roberto Martinez and have played really well. Everton are capable of beating anybody in this league.

    “They are not doing us favours; ultimately if they got a positive result then we would accept it nicely, but they are playing for themselves and their supporters.

    “They are still fighting for fourth place and, although that’s becoming harder for them, it’s not impossible. They will do the right thing for Everton and try and win the game.

    “As I say, it’s not over. We didn’t have our best day at the office on Sunday, it was difficult, but we have got two games to go and we should still be very positive.

    “City haven’t been perfect all year and we are not out of it. We shouldn’t be down and thinking the worst. We have had a great season but we are still close to winning the title.”
