Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has praised Jay Spearing’s recent performances. He wrote in his column fo the Liverpool Echo:

“Jay Spearing had his best game in a Liverpool shirt against Sunderland. It was great to see and the more experience he gets the better he will become. Spearing is a terrier. He did really well to win the penalty and was only denied his first goal by a brilliant save. He was excellent and only Luis Suarez stopped him from getting the man of the match award. Spearing is a better player now than Lucas was three years ago. Give him three years experience of being in the squad and he will mature into a fine player. Kenny Dalglish clearly has a lot of faith in him and everyone wants to see him do well. He’s a local lad and you can see how much it means to him to pull on the shirt. We’re all behind him and now he’s got to take the bull by the horns and have belief in himself.”

Aldridge also believes that Liverpool can still finish fifth:

“Finishing fifth is still going to be very tough but Liverpool have given themselves a chance of catching Spurs. We’re on the front foot and have to keep this winning run going. All we can do is focus on getting three points at West Brom a week on Saturday and hope Spurs slip up. There’s no doubt Harry Redknapp’s side have got a tough run in as well as the distraction of the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid. They’ve got Chelsea away as well as Arsenal at home. Crucially, Spurs also have to come to Anfield. That last home game of the season for Liverpool could be huge.”
