"It's in our own hands and it would be a good achievement," Wijnaldum told the Liverpool Echo. "It would be a good step for next season for us to play against better teams in the Champions League.
"Getting more experience as a team and learning to handle more matches will make us better. Qualifying for the Champions League would just be the start. This is the beginning of something that can go much bigger."
If the Reds fail to get a result this weekend and Arsenal overcome Sunderland and beat Everton on the final day of the season, the North London outfit will pip Liverpool to the Champions League spots.
