John Arne Riise has called on Liverpool to earn all three points against Watford on Monday night in any way possible.
The Merseyside giants could go three points clear in third place with victory, after Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped points over the weekend.
Ex-Liverpool left-back Riise urged his old side to gain three points on his personal Twitter account, claiming “there is no hiding” as the Premier League reaches its climax.
After results over the weekend there is no hiding. Tonight it's all about 3 points. Only a win is good enough. Don't care how. @LFC

Liverpool come into the game against Walter Mazzari’s Hornets following a disappointing 2-1 loss against Crystal Palace at Anfield last time out.
However, they have won five of their last eight league games and will be expected to make that six in nine as they travel to Hertfordshire to face Watford at Vicarage Road.
Manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can produce a repeat of the huge 6-1 win against Watford last time the two sides met, as the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho all scored.
With four games still to play in England’s top flight, victory could prove crucial in seeing Klopp’s side earn a place in the Champions League next season.
Riise, who also had spells with Fulham, Roma and Monaco, made a huge 350 league and cup appearances for the Reds during a seven-year period between 2001 and 2008.
