Jamie Carragher: Liverpool have the weapons to win the league

Jamie Carragher is convinced that Liverpool have what it takes to win the Premier League title this season.
The Reds underlined their status as genuine contenders for the top-flight crown on Sunday following their impressive 3-0 win at Manchester United.
The two Anfield games against Chelsea and City will determine the outcome of the title race
Brendan Rodgers’ side, who are currently second in the Premier League table, still have to welcome title rivals Manchester City and Chelsea to Anfield before the end of the campaign.
And former Liverpool defender Carragher feels that those clashes are likely to determine the Merseyside club’s fate.
“Will they do it? They definitely have the right weapons,” Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail.
“Liverpool look strong whereas you can question their rivals: will Chelsea pay for the lack of a top-class striker? Is Manchester City’s defence strong enough? Do Arsenal have the players to produce when it matters?
“There will be more twists and turns and Liverpool are going to have to prepare themselves for something not going their way over the next nine games. How they handle a tense situation will be the real test.
“I am certain, though, that the two Anfield games against Chelsea and City will determine the outcome of the title race.”
