Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is still confident that the Reds can make a major singing before the transfer window shuts on Friday night.

Liverpool proved their top four credentials last night when they hammered Merseyside rivals Everton 4-0 at Anfield courtesy of two goals from Daniel Sturridge and one a piece from Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez.

So far though off the pitch, Rodgers is not doing so well in the transfer market after having lost out on priority signing Mohamed Salah to Chelsea.

When speaking to Sky Sports after the match the Northern Irishman revealed that he is confident of still being able to bring in a player to help boost Liverpool’s Champions League ambitions before the dead line on Friday.

“I think we will hopefully do something over the next couple of days,” he said.

“I saw some headlines after Monday’s press conference in terms of the manager being angry with the club – nothing is further from the truth.

“We are not just going to get the players we want to get in for a number of reasons.

“Hopefully we can have a major signing before the window shuts and if we can do that we will be set up for the remaining games.”

Despite whatever happened between now and Friday Rodgers credits the derby victory as being important for the club.

“I think all wins are important but especially against your rivals and psychologically it was a big win and can re-iterate the confidence and belief in the squad,” said Rodgers.

“We have to keep our foot to the floor and keep these performances and keep scoring goals.

“This was a massive game. I think we have shown all season we are going to be in contention for fourth place.”
