Jim Beglin is confident that Liverpool will see through their Premier League title challenge if Manchester City falter at Everton on Saturday.

The Reds are three points clear of the Citizens but Manuel Pellegrini’s men will leapfrog their rivals by virtue of their superior goal difference if they win their remaining Premier League games.

If City do falter at Goodison then I think Liverpool will see it through

Beglin, who won the title with Liverpool in 1986, urged the current Reds side to forget about their loss to Chelsea and turn their attention to their trip to Crystal Palace.

“Understandably, everyone was down after the Chelsea game and the task for Brendan and his coaching staff this week will have been to pick everyone up,” Beglin told the Liverpool Echo.

“Chelsea came to spoil and they did that expertly. Liverpool have to put that behind them.

“When you feel like you’ve almost got one hand on the title, a defeat like that can demoralise you.

“But Liverpool still have a lot to be positive about. Since the turn of the year they have been phenomenal. They should be proud of what they’ve done so far.

“Hopefully, Liverpool will be going out at Selhurst Park on Monday with a similar feeling to when Man City walked out there last Sunday. City were full of beans after learning of Liverpool’s defeat.

“All of a sudden their belief was back.

“Liverpool will have that same feeling if Everton get a result against City. If City do falter at Goodison then I think Liverpool will see it through.”
