Glenn Hoddle believes Jurgen Klopp has a chance of leading Liverpool to a top four finish.

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has told Kicca he believes Liverpool now have a chance of finishing in the top four this season.

The Reds have called a press conference for Friday morning at 10am, for which new manager Jurgen Klopp will be unveiled as Brendan Rodgers' replacement.

Hoddle, who managed in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, Swindon, Southampton and Wolves, believes if Klopp gets off to a fast start, then they could pick up momentum to secure a Champions League place for next season.

He said: "Liverpool have got to become consistent under Klopp. Very quickly he's got to take the reins and get to know his players, pick his best team.

"There could be a little door opening for Liverpool Football Club to get into the top four."

Hoddle bases this on the fact he does not believe any of last season's top four teams have shown signs of being infallible, picking up surprise or at times heavy losses, despite showing positive moments.

Liverpool's first game after the international break is away at Hoddle's former club Tottenham Hotspur, and a win would take the Reds above the North London side, who sit one point above them.

After that come league fixtures against Southampton and Chelsea, with cup games against Bournemouth and Rubin Kazan in between, which will give Klopp a chance to rotate his players and learn more about the 'best eleven', Hoddle argues he needs to settle on.
