John Aldridge believes Liverpool have a "massive chance" of finishing in the top four in the 2015/16 season if they go on to improve their home form. The Reds defeated Manchester City 4-1 at the Etihad and the latest victory has seen them move to the ninth spot with 20 points, trailing fourth place Arsenal by six points.

The Merseyside club played Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, City, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Stoke City away from home in the league clash this term. They failed to avoid defeat only against their arch-rivals as Liverpool suffered a 3-1 defeat against Louis van Gaal's side at Old Trafford earlier in the season.

Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers in October and the German manager has lost only one match in all competitions as the Reds boss. The former Anfield striker admitted that he expected Liverpool to drop points against other teams and was delighted that they bagged 12 points from those seven matches.

"The problem Liverpool have got now is to sort out their home form. We've played all the main teams away from home and we've accumulated a nice amount of points, probably more than I expected if I'm honest," Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo.

"It was really only at Manchester United where we failed to get something. The Premier League fixtures felt like a fix with us travelling first to tough grounds like Stoke, Arsenal, Spurs, United, Everton, Chelsea and Man City."

"But we've managed to get 12 points out of those games with precious victories that we didn't seem to get under Brendan Rodgers. If we can sort out our home form and get it better, we've got a massive, massive chance of getting into the top four."

"Teams come to Anfield and set up differently; they sit back and get men behind the ball. But Jurgen Klopp can find the solution and he's got options now," he concluded.
