ADAM LALLANA IS confident Liverpool can secure a top four finish after they ended 2014 on a high by beating Swansea City at Anfield.

Two goals from the former Southampton star helped inspire Brendan Rodgers’s side to a 4-1 victory on Monday night, a result that moved them up into eighth place, five points behind Southampton in fourth.

And despite an indifferent first half of the season, Lallana has seen enough in Liverpool’s recent performances to suggest that they are capable of claiming a Champions League spot.

He told Sky Sports: “Of course there is [a belief Liverpool can get top four]. Especially because we’re finding performances now and we’ve had a couple of good results.

“We’ll take it game by game but that’s our target, to finish in the top four. It’s where the fans want us to be playing and the players themselves.”
