Lucas Leiva believes Liverpool can catch rivals Everton
Lucas Leiva believes Liverpool still have a chance of catching Merseyside rivals Everton with three games left to play.
The Reds currently sit in seventh place, five points behind Everton in sixth, but Lucas says if they beat the Toffees next weekend then overtaking them is possible.
"We still have a chance of catching Everton and that's our target," said the Brazilian. "We know we have to win if we want to finish a position higher than we are now.
"Merseyside derbies are always special to play in. The atmosphere will be amazing at Anfield and it's the kind of game you really look forward to playing in.
"We will go into the derby with a lot of confidence. Hopefully we can get another win and try to finish the season on a bit of a high.
"It's been a difficult season for us but we have to keep going. We still have three games remaining and the chance to get nine more points. The manner of our victory against Newcastle showed the character of everyone."
