Phil Thompson is tipping Liverpool FC to win all of their remaining seven games in the Premier League and win the title this season.

The Reds currently lead the way at the top of the Premier League table as they look to try and win the title ahead of defending champions Manchester City this term.

Liverpool FC were 2-1 winners over Fulham on Sunday to move two points clear of Manchester City, although Jurgen Klopp’s men have played a game more than Pep Guardiola’s side.

Next up for Liverpool FC is a home clash against Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday 31 March as they look to gain some momentum ahead of the defining few weeks of the season.

Liverpool FC legend Thompson is backing the Reds to beat Tottenham 3-1 and also win their remaining other games, including clashes against Chelsea FC and Southampton.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Thompson said: “At any given point, Tottenham at home is always a massive game, not just for Liverpool but for Tottenham too, in regards to Champions League places.

“It is huge for both sides. I think Liverpool, after getting their tiredness out of their legs against Fulham, will be ready for Tottenham.

“After previous international breaks, Liverpool have not come back afterwards and performed well but hopefully they will come back in a better place this time.”

Thompson continued: “Southampton have done very well with Hasenhuttl. They have a bit of belief and it was a big win against Tottenham, while they did not have a lot of possession.

“That is obviously, with so many Southampton connections in the Liverpool side, going to be a big game for the Southampton side but I can see Liverpool winning again. It will be a tough game.”

And previewing the Liverpool FC v Chelsea FC game, he added: “At the moment you do not know what you are going to get with Chelsea. They have been criticised and had a wobble but came back with good wins. They had the upper hand against Everton but could not finish them off.

“They have the capabilities to hurt you and with Eden Hazard you always have a trump card to be played. He will always be a danger. He came on against Liverpool for a cameo in the cup earlier this season and scored one of the best goals I have seen.

“The players will not need any motivation and we will be ready for it. This will be one of the tightest games.”

The Merseyside outfit are still searching for their first piece of major silverware under Klopp since his appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.

Liverpool FC – who finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season – will face FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals next month.
