Mignolet: Liverpool hungry for Champions League

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has called on his teammates to remain focused on their target of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

The Reds edged out Watford 1-0 in their Premier League clash on Monday, which helped them open up a three-point lead over fourth-placed Manchester City.

The result against the Hornets was Liverpool's third win in their last five top-flight games, but Mignolet knows they need to keep their guard up.

"We have to keep going how we are. We are in good shape but things can still change. We have to keep our focus, keep our feet on the floor and keep grinding out results," Mignolet told the press, according to Reuters.

"Everybody is very hungry to play in the Champions League. It's where you want to play. But we're not there yet and there's still a lot of hard work ahead of us."
