Luis Suarez admits Liverpool have to beat Tottenham on Sunday if their distant hopes of Champions League qualification are not to be ended.
The Reds trail fourth-placed Chelsea by 10 points ahead of this weekend's fixtures, and although the chance of making up the ground looks improbable in the final 10 matches, the Uruguay international has not given up.
Suarez knows, however, they have to beat third-placed Spurs at Anfield if they are to stand a chance.
"We've been in good form recently and it's a good opportunity to reduce the gap between ourselves and Spurs," said Suarez, leading scorer in the Premier League with 21 goals.
"There is a slight chance we can make Champions League football - and if we want to do that, this is the sort of game we need to win."
Suarez goes looking for his 50th Liverpool goal on his 91st appearance, and while he has been the team's outstanding player by netting 28 times across all competitions this season he is keen to share the praise.
