Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool will beat Merseyside rivals Everton to claim a place in the Premier League’s top four.

The Toffees turned their poor Goodison Park form around as they secured a narrow win against Southampton on Monday night.

Richarlison’s superb first-half finish sealed the 1-0 win against the Saints last night, making it their first win on home soil in 2021.

Everton now sit in 7th spot, just a couple of points off fourth-placed West Ham, with a game in hand, and are level on points with champions Liverpool after beating the Reds at Anfield last month.

However, ex-England defender Carragher reckons Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will find a way into next season's Champions League competition.

"Are Everton good enough [to finish in the top four]? I think they may just fall short," he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

"The squad of players is maybe just short of some of the other sides, you think of Liverpool and Chelsea.

"But if you look at the manager they have got, we have already spoken about his record and also how much of an impact he has had at Everton.

"I think the last two wins have pushed his win percentage above 50 percent.

"No Everton manager has been close to that since Howard Kendall's first spell - Everton's best ever manager - so that shows the job he has done since he has come in.

"I think if Everton are to get to the top four a lot of it will be down to Ancelotti. I think other teams fighting for it maybe have better XIs or squads, but with that man in charge anything is possible.

"The challenge should be top four, if you are Everton now and you don't qualify for Europe I think that would be a real disappointment.

"What they have to be thinking is the Europa League is the minimum, but they should be seriously thinking about top four, why not?"
