Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admits that they are relying on the likes of Tottenham to make mistakes.
Liverpool have played a game more than Spurs and are currently four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the race for the final Champions League place.
“We knew the game against United would be very tough. The question is now about the other teams,” said Benitez.
“Tottenham won at the weekend but we have to keep going. We know they have to make mistakes and we have to keep winning games to reduce the gap and be there.
“There are still a lot of points to be played for so we have to keep going. If we can win our games we will be there at the end.
“As a manager you have to believe. It will be more difficult but we have to keep pushing and I think we can do it.
“This year is a difficult year with too many things against but still we have to keep fighting and I am confident the team will be ready for the next game against Sunderland (on Sunday).”
