Liverpool are capable of winning the Premier League title, according to Arsenal legend Martin Keown.

The Reds will lift their first top-flight crown since 1990 if Brendan Rodgers’s side win their remaining six games in the Premier League campaign.

They are ahead of Chelsea and if City slip up then that will give Liverpool a real injection of belief

And former Arsenal defender Keown reckons Liverpool will face the other form side in the division when they make the trip to Upton Park on Sunday.

“I think they can [win the title],” Keown said in the Daily Mail.

“It’s the old adage of one game at a time, and that might be boring but it’s so true.

“The West Ham match will be their focus now and it’s always a difficult game to go to. Sam Allardyce is confident he has kept them up and now the pressure is off.

“In a way they are the two form teams in the league, though Liverpool are much easier on the eye. It could be a strange atmosphere at Upton Park, which might help Liverpool.”

He added: “It’s so important not to slip up on your travels but if you are going to play Manchester City and Chelsea, you want those games to come at home.

“They are ahead of Chelsea and if City slip up then that will give Liverpool a real injection of belief. Personally, I think at this time of year you let your football do the talking.

“It’s tempting for players to start talking but you just want to hear one voice, the manager’s.”
