Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes the Reds exciting brand of attacking football means they thoroughly deserve their second place position in the Barclays Premier League.
The Reds go into the final nine games of the season four points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand, and Fowler believes the form shown by Brendan Rodgers side has reason for supporters to get excited.
“At the start of the season Liverpool’s aim was to get into the top four,” said the 38-year-old.
“That was always going to be tough because the squad’s not as [deep] as a lot of the teams in the Premier League. I hope I’m right in saying this but I think they’re nailed on for a Champions League [spot].
“They deserve to be there. At the time now, they are second in the league, they are not lucky, they are there on merit and they’ve been exciting and they’re good to watch this year.
“It’s going to be tough because Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are all good sides and potentially got bigger and better squads but Liverpool are there on merit and I don’t see any reason why they can’t win it. It will be tough but they have as good a chance as anyone else.”
