Liverpool still have no room for slip-ups in title race, says Jamie Redknapp
Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp feels the Reds will need to win their remaining four games to win the Premier League
Liverpool still have no room for slip-ups in the Premier League title race, according to Jamie Redknapp.
The Reds are two points clear of Chelsea and a further seven ahead of Manchester City after a 3-2 victory over Manuel Pellegrini’s side at Anfield on Sunday.
They have four games left and need to win them all. There is no room to slip up
Liverpool are away to Norwich City next Sunday before home games against Chelsea and Newcastle United, with a trip to Crystal Palace sandwiched between the Anfield clashes.
And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp feels the Reds answered any lingering questions about their title temperament by weathering a second-half City storm and securing three points.
“Liverpool’s win over Man City was one of the best games I’ve seen for a long time. Liverpool were sensational and just blew City away in the first half,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“There were questions over whether they could cope with the pressure but they answered them all with a wonderful performance.”
He added: “It was an enthralling, end-to-end game and what the Premier League is all about.
“Now we have to wait and see what will win the title: the flair and power of Liverpool and Man City or Chelsea’s defensive determination.
“Liverpool have won 10 in a row but they will have to break a top-flight record if they want to win it. Arsenal won 14 straight games in 2002 but that was split across two seasons. Liverpool could match that record in one.
“They have four games left and need to win them all. There is no room to slip up.”
