It’s getting desperate for Burnley, Hull and West Ham at the foot of the Premiership – click here for the best relegation betting

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez ibelieves his side are still targeting a place in the top four of the Premier League as well as glory in the Europa League.

The Reds have progressed to the semi-finals in Europe after an impressive 4-1 second-leg victory over Benfica at Anfield on Thursday night secured a 5-3 aggregate triumph.

It had been suggested that Benitez had given up hope of a top-four place, but ahead of Sunday’s league match against Fulham, the Spaniard insists the season is alive on two fronts.

Benitez said: “Hopefully we can play well, score goals, get closer to the top four and get to the final.

“We will try to win every game. We will try to do it against Fulham on Sunday and try to get close to the top four.

“If we can get to the final and win the final we will be very pleased. We have two targets now and we will try to do both.”

Fernando Torres created club history as his two goals against Benfica made him the first player to score twice in four successive games at Anfield.

Benitez said: “I was really pleased with the first and second goals but the third was amazing because there were a lot of players involved. It was perfect.

“We have some very good players and the value of the squad is much greater than in the past.

“Torres has a big value because he is a good player, still young and I think he can improve.”
