Jamie Carragher makes prediction about Liverpool this season

Jamie Carragher says Liverpool will be in contention to win the Premier League title this season

Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool will be in contention to win the Premier League title come the end of the season.

The Reds have been in fine form in recent weeks and have established themselves as Chelsea’s closest challengers for the title this term.

Chelsea have been the Premier League’s standout team following the Blues’ brilliant start to life under new boss Antonio Conte.

The west London side are looking to win the Premier League title this season after their disastrous campaign last term when they finished 10th and without a trophy.

Liverpool, like Chelsea, do not have the distraction of European football this term and have been in solid form in the top flight.

And former Liverpool defender Carragher has revealed that his one wish for the year would be to see the Reds win the Premier League title.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Carragher said: “I hope to see Liverpool lift the Premier League, I must say. I think they will be contention. I think it will be a great end to the Premier League season.

“I also hope there’s more than two teams involved at the end of the season. It normally narrows itself down to two, I think history tells you that, but I think it would be fantastic if we had three or four teams in it.

“Hopefully we will be looking at different games and head-to-head where wins and losses are absolutely vital.”
