Robbie Fowler: Liverpool have good chance of winning Premier League title
Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler feels the Reds are nailed on to secure a top-four finish after their win at Old Trafford
Robbie Fowler believes Liverpool have a “good chance” of winning the Premier League title.
The Reds are four points behind leaders Chelsea, who have played one game more than Brendan Rodgers’s men, after a 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
It will be tough but they have as good a chance as anyone else
Liverpool, who haven’t won the top-flight crown since 1990, welcome title rivals Chelsea and Manchester City to Anfield as the season reaches its conclusion.
And Fowler, who scored 183 Liverpool goals, reckons Rodgers’s side are guaranteed a top-four finish and have a good opportunity to finally end their 24-year wait.
“At the start of the season Liverpool’s aim was to get into the top four,” Fowler told RTE.
“That was always going to be tough because the squad’s not as [deep] as a lot of the teams in the Premier League.
“Look, I hope, I’m right in saying this but I think they’re nailed on for a Champions League [spot].
“They deserve to be there. At the time now, they are second in the league, they are not lucky, they are there on merit and they’ve been exciting and they’re good to watch this year.
“It’s going to be tough because Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal are all good sides and potentially got bigger and better squads but Liverpool are there on merit and I don’t see any reason why they can’t win it.
“It will be tough but they have as good a chance as anyone else.”
