Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp thinks his side's recent experience vying for the Premier League's top prize will help them beat Chelsea and West Ham for a top-four spot.
Following Real Madrid's elimination from the Champions League on Wednesday, the Reds' primary goal for the remaining weeks of the season is to return to the top four and secure another season in Europe's top competition.
West Ham's loss at Newcastle means they have the chance to move into fourth place when they travel to Leeds on Monday night, but Chelsea will have a game in hand due to their FA Cup involvement this weekend.
Klopp's team are no strangers to being under pressure down the stretch, having won the European Cup in 2019 and the Premier League last season – a year after bringing Manchester City to the wire in the title race – and the manager expects that to count.
"It is absolutely important," he said.
"We have kind of seven finals if you want. We will see.
"We will only know at the end how many points we will need to make it happen, but as I have said before, we should not waste time or points and really go for it. That is the situation we are in."
While there has been disappointment in Europe, Liverpool has won three consecutive league games, reviving hopes of a top-four finish after the champions struggled through six losses in seven games, dropping as low as eighth at one stage.
