Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott says they want to prove their doubters wrong and reach the top four.
Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace leaves the Reds scrambling for Champions League qualification.
Elliott told liverpoolfc.com: “For us, I feel it’s always motivation to try to prove people wrong. I think many people are maybe doubting us to get a Champions League spot, to finish high up in the table, for example, or to get further in the Champions League.
“For us, it’s always motivation. We want to keep proving people wrong. We always want to go out and enjoy the experiences, enjoy these challenges because, at the end of the day, it’s what makes us as players and what gives us that opportunity to go out and learn again on a different stage, different circumstance.
“As I said, it’s just motivation to put things right and to reach as far as we can possibly reach. That’s exactly what we’re going to be trying to do.”
