Luis Suarez claims Liverpool must defeat Tottenham on Sunday if they are to keep alive their hopes of Champions League qualification.
The 25-year-old Uruguayan international has enjoyed a successful campaign at Anfield on a personal level with 21 Premier League goals already in the bag to lead the race for the Golden Boot.
However, Suarez's main ambition is to try and help Brendan Rodgers' side end the season with a flourish and make up the 10-point gap between themselves and fourth-placed Chelsea.
The Reds only have the league left to focus on and Suarez is looking for three points off third-placed Spurs to start making a late surge for Champions League football.
"We've been in good form recently and it's a good opportunity to reduce the gap between ourselves and Spurs," he said. "There is a slight chance we can make Champions League football - and if we want to do that, this is the sort of game we need to win."
Suarez also feels the arrival of January signings Daniel Sturridge and Brazilian Philippe Coutinho have helped him and the side's form.
"Things have been going really well with Daniel, but not only him - there's also Philippe," he added. "They have both brought something and maybe given us an extra cutting edge.
"They are players who can make a difference in a game, so it's been nice to link up with them. The lads who were here before their arrival were doing a fantastic job, but now we have more options as a team."
