Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool are now in the “driving seat” in the Premier League title race heading into the final four games of the season.

The Reds are currently two points clear of second-placed Chelsea ahead of their trip to Norwich City on Easter Sunday following their win over Manchester City last weekend.

Being favourites does put you under a slightly different pressure

Manuel Pellegrini’s Citizens dropped points in midweek in a 2-2 draw with Sunderland to leave City six points behind the leaders with a game in hand.

And the former Liverpool defender believes that Chelsea’s trip to Anfield on 27 April could prove decisive in the race for the top-flight crown.

“Maybe being favourites does put you under a slightly different pressure, but with four games to go you’d rather be top of the league,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“The Chelsea game [at Anfield] could be pivotal, but they said that about the Manchester City game and Liverpool dealt with that.

“City and Chelsea will make it as difficult as possible, but Liverpool are in the driving seat and it is up to themselves now.”
