Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt believes that his side did not deserve to be on the losing side in the match against Fulham at Craven Cottage and said that they might live to rue the missed chances as they missed out on closing the gap on the top four and enter into the UEFA Champions League qualification spot.
The loss to Fulham meant that they lost their 11 match unbeaten run in all competitions and Kuyt feels that it might affect the momentum that they were in. the 11 match run included the draw at home against league leaders and high flyers Manchester City in a match they completely dominated and should have won probably. He also said that luck was not on their side against Fulham as several decisions went against them during the match and this included the sending off of young midfielder Jay Spearing.
Dirk Kuyt also believes that all is not lost, however, and there is still every chance that Liverpool will finish in the top 4 and be in the UEFA Champions League next season. The club has been starving of European action for the last two three years now and according to Kuyt, for a club of Liverpool’s standing, they do not deserve to be not playing in Europe each and every season.
However, Kuyt feels that his side will show the strength of character by bouncing right back against Queens Park Rangers who come to play at Anfield on Saturday and a win against the newly promoted side will put Liverpool back in contention for the fourth and final spot in the UEFA Champions League. Dirk Kuyt also feels that the side has now settled and in a couple of year’s time, it will challenge the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea for the title regularly.
