Roy Evans believes Liverpool will get their title monkey off their back if the Reds avoid any slip-ups.

The Reds are four games away from winning their first-ever Premier League crown thanks to a 3-2 victory over rivals Manchester City last weekend.

The lesson is you have to take your chance because you don’t know when you will get another one

Liverpool make the trip to relegation-threatened Norwich City on Easter Sunday, looking to cement their two-point lead over second-placed Chelsea.

Evans led the Reds close to title glory during his reign in the mid-1990s, and the former Liverpool boss warned Brendan Rodgers’s that they must take their chances.

“I have regrets. You look back and think: ‘What if?’ Could we have done better? Could I have done better? Did I make mistakes? Probably overall you do,” Evans is quoted as saying by the Guardian.

“The lesson is you have to take your chance because you don’t know when you will get another one.

“If Liverpool win it this year, it takes that monkey off their back. But it is going to be tough. Four more games and four tough games. The nice thing is they have got the belief they can win it.”

He added: “I think they will do it but there’s no room for any slip-ups.”
