The Reds moved to the top of the table for the first time since December following a 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday.

If they did it, I wouldn’t fall off my seat now

Pat Nevin

Liverpool, who are on a eight-game winning streak, are two points clear of second-placed Chelsea ahead of home games against the Blues and Manchester City this month.

“Can they keep that [winning streak] going? Certainly they can keep going for most of the games. The big questions will come up against Manchester City and to some degree Chelsea as well,” Nevin told Newstalk’s Off The Ball.

“But would anyone be surprised if they kept it going? It would be slightly surprising in the sense they’ll have gone 13 or 14 games without dropping any points.

“If they did it, I wouldn’t fall off my seat now.”

Former Chelsea and Everton midfielder Nevin added that there is something different about Liverpool this term, emphasising the belief currently engulfing the club.

“Well the run they are on is extraordinary. There is not a negative word to say about the way that they’re playing,” Nevin added.

“There is something else, something slightly undefinable. If anyone was watching the game [against Spurs] in the sunshine and the glorious feeling they had and the crowd behind them and the way they were.

“So much joy and confidence in the way they’re playing, it is hard to put a finger on what causes that. Very few teams can produce that because nervousness does come on teams. We witnessed that against Sunderland.

“The quickest and easiest way I can explain it is there is something in the air at Anfield right now. They believe it.”
