Liverpool are playing awesome football this season, according to Pep Guardiola.

The Reds are top of the Premier League table and two points clear of second-placed Chelsea after a 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday.

They deserve to be there and it’s good for the Champions League that next season Liverpool will be there

Liverpool have already scored a staggering 88 Premier League goals this season, which is six more strikes than German champions Bayern in the Bundesliga.

And Guardiola, whose Bayern side face Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at Old Trafford on Tuesday, hailed the Reds.

“I’m happy that Liverpool are coming back this season, because they are playing awesome,” Guardiola told Liverpool Echo.

“They deserve to be there and it’s good for the Champions League that next season Liverpool will be there.”

Former Liverpool defender Carragher backed the Reds to win the title following their emphatic victory over Spurs.

“I think Liverpool will win it now,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.

“I think the feeling before Spurs was they’ve got the chance.

“But the results and the intensity Liveprool played with on and off the pitch.

He continued: “I’m talking about the crowd. You hear the roar at the end of the game.

“The chanting for Brendan Rodgers during the [Spurs] game – I’ve never heard of that as much.

“After this game, I think there is a major belief Liverpool can go on and win it.

“There was a banner in the crown ‘Make us dream’, I think they believe now. Looking at it now, and the way they are playing, I think it will be difficult to Man City going there and take three points.”
