So far, the season has been all good for The Reds. Brendan Rogers has transformed a side into one of the three title contenders in a race that also has Chelsea and Manchester City. Sunday’s clash at Anfield will leave Liverpool fans with a clear picture of where they could be at the end of the season.
Liverpool go into the tie on the apex of the log standings – unfamiliar territory for them in the last two decades, but very few would deny this is what they have deserved this season. Their famous war-cry “You Will Never Walk Alone” has been the most-sung song in the Premiership.
The winner of Sunday’s game, should there be one,will surely make a very good case for winning the title in the end, although Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea would like to whisper against that. They are still two points behind the log leaders as of early this week with four games still remaining.
In their worst run this season, Liverpool lost to Arsenal (cup), Chelsea and City, not in that order, but in succession. Having already thrashed Arsenal 5-0 at home in the league, defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 and Manchester United 3-0 away at Old Trafford, very few would deny that City can be one of the sides they thrash this weekend to make good their escape from being the league’s laughing stock.Post published in: Football
