Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool will win the Premier League title this season after the reds went top of the Premier League yesterday after thrashing Tottenham 4-0 at Anfield to take advantage on points dropped by main title rivals Chelsea and Manchester City
Carragher reckons there is a belief amongst the players and the fans that Brendan Rodgers’s side can claim a first Premier League title.
Manchester City, who trail Liverpool by four points have two games in hand and still remain the bookmakers’ favourites to win the Premier League.
Carragher told Monday Night Football:
“I think Liverpool will win it now. The feeling before the weekend was ‘we’ve got a chance’, but those results and the intensity Liverpool played with on and off the pitch has changed that. I’m talking about the crowd, I’m talking about the Kop. You heard the roar at the end of the game and you know something’s happening. They are chanting for Brendan Rodgers throughout the game and I’ve never heard that before as much. They are normally singing Kenny Dalglish’s name or for Rafa Benitez a little bit, but it was all for the manager Brendan Rodgers. After this game there is a major belief that Liverpool will go on and win the league. There’s a banner in the crowd now: ‘make us dream’ and I think they’re making the supporters believe now. With the way they are playing – and the pace and energy they’ve got – it will be very difficult for Man City to go there and take three points. I can only see Liverpool winning that game.”
If Liverpool continue to play the remaining of the 6 games in the same intensity and desire then we stand a great chance of winning the league – come on you reds!
