"Moyes’ side have been brilliant, but I saw enough in that second half against Spurs to tell me it’s just too much for them to do in the reminder of the season. "Everton have got the fixture list to make a challenge, but I do worry about their consistency. "For me, it’s between Chelsea and Liverpool for that final spot."If Chelsea have a good March, that’s it, they are in. But, I worry about Chelsea scoring enough goals. I can’t see them blowing teams away. "I’ve always said Liverpool will make it but when push comes to shove, it so hard to stick with them, at the moment. "It’s hard to get away from their form and the fact the luck is not with them. "You look at the games they’ve lost, and you look at the games they have coming up and wonder if they can turn it around. "They should beat Sheffield United but there is doubt there, especially with no defenders. "I’ve shown so much faith in them, but the players keep dropping like flies."The one player I want on the pitch out of all of their players at the moment is Jordan Henderson."When things are not going well, he’s the leader. He’s the player that gets people going. "With him now being out of the team it’s a bit of a worry. ‘It feels like I’m just going with the name and not looking at the performances and results."The teams they haven’t beaten is very worrying. I don’t know why, but I have to stick with Liverpool. "Please don’t ask me why but I’m keeping the faith with Jurgen Klopp and his side."08:43Chris BeesleyWerner could have been 'a good one' for LiverpoolTimo Werner is challenged by Fabinho during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Liverpool.For several months last season in looked like Timo Werner was going to end up joining Liverpool but the RB Leipzig striker ended up going to Chelsea instead.The 24-year-old has netted 10 goals in 32 games in total so far for the Londoners but just half of those have come in the Premier League.

.HITC quote Jenas as telling BT Sport:“There was talk of Timo Werner going to Liverpool at one point, wasn’t there?“I know maybe he has not exactly caught fire at Chelsea, but under a different manager, different circumstances maybe that might have been a good one to get over the line.” 08:14Chris BeesleyLiverpool eye Sevilla hot shotYoussef En-Nesyri of Sevilla (Image: Mateo Villalba/Quality Sport Images/Getty Images)Liverpool are lining up a potential move for Sevilla hot shot Youssef En-Nesyri, according to a report.The 23-year-old Moroccan international striker has netted 17 goals in all competitions so far this season, including 13 in La Liga.His prolific form has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe with a £27million offer from West Ham United rejected in January.The Express cite 90min as claiming that Liverpool and Manchester United have now asked Sevilla to keep them in the loop as they remain interested in signing the prolific forward.07:55Chris BeesleyHolgate makes Klopp Derby claimJurgen Klopp and Alisson Becker embrace after Divock Origi's late winner against Everton... engulfed in blue smoke (Image: Robbie Jay Barratt - AMA/Getty Images)Everton defender Mason Holgate says that memories of Jurgen Klopp running on to the pitch in wild celebration in a previous Merseyside Derby motivated the visitors ahead of their 2-0 win at Anfield on Saturday.The Liverpool manager sprinted to the centre circle to embrace goalkeeper Alisson following Divock Origi's late winner in the fixture back in December 2018 - an act that that prompted him to receive an £8,000 fine for misconduct and a promise from the German that it “would not happen again.”Everton secured their first victory at Anfield since 1999 and The Boot Room quotes Holgate as telling Rio Ferdinand's YouTube channel, when asked about the Reds boss' actions: “Yeah it definitely plays on your mind.“Things like that, I don’t even know how to say about it."To be able to put it nicely, I’m not really sure how to do it. It just gets to you so bad. And then you’re seeing it for weeks on videos. So to get one over like that was good.”07:23Chris BeesleyLiverpool want MilenkovicLiverpool want Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic, according to a report.Rousing the Kop cite Sky Germany as claiming the 6ft 5in Serbian international has been the subject of enquiries from the Reds plus Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.Their article states:It follows a recent report from Fiorentina News. They believe that La Viola will try and sell Milenkovic this summer.The player is up for grabs, then, and there’s a potential bidding war on the horizon. But Dortmund’s interest suggests it’s one Liverpool can win. The 23-year-old, who has been capped 26 times to date, has played in Serie A since 2017.07:03Chris BeesleyLiverpool-linked Konate has release clauseIbrahima Konate in Champions League action for RB Leipzig against Istanbul BasaksehirLike his previously Liverpool-linked RB Leipzig team-mate Dayot Upamecano - who has agreed a summer switch to Bayern Munich - Ibrahima Konate also has a release clause, according to a report.HITC cite SportBILD as claiming that Konate could be prised away with a £40million offer.Their article states:On paper at least, Konate would slot in perfectly alongside Virgil van Dijk at Anfield. In the eyes of some, the Paris-born 21-year-old is actually a better defender than the latest addition to FC Hollywood’s all-star cast – more aggressive and uncompromising than Upamecano.And, according to BILD, Konate also has an affordable release clause in his contract. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United can snap up the former France U21 star if they are willing to pay the £40 million fee required.The report adds that, in Strasbourg youngster Mohamed Simakan, Leipzig are on the verge of signing a new right-sided central defender. Konate’s successor, perhaps?
