Liverpool in the hunt for points

MANCHESTER (Reuters) – Liverpool have a chance to consolidate their position in the Champions League qualification spots when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, while three of the top four are in FA Cup semi-final action.
 

Looking to benefit from any slipup by Juergen Klopp’s side are fifth-placed Manchester United – unbeaten in 22 games – who will be hoping to make up further ground when they face Burnley at Turf Moor. Klopp’s side are unbeaten in seven games and defender Dejan Lovren says they need to maintain that level of consistency during the run-in. “We have a big thing to achieve – the Champions League. Everyone wants that but if you want to be a top team, you need to continue to play well in every game,” said the Croatia international.
 

Palace, however, have been revitalized under boss Sam Allardyce and have found some consistency of their own, picking up 13 points from their last six games to surge away from the relegation zone.
