Liverpool are capable of beating Manchester City to the Premier League title, according to Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.
The Reds are nine points behind the league leaders with a game in hand and, while he still thinks it will be tough, Neville believes Jurgen Klopp’s side can hunt down City if they keep their strongest lineup on the pitch:
“City, they are a machine, you don’t expect them to make a lot of mistakes, but they could. They could. And Liverpool and Chelsea have got to believe that. It can happen, and Liverpool have got it in them, if they can keep that XI together, that strongest XI, get Mane and Salah back flying.”
Considering the number of games that Liverpool will play between now and the end of the season, keeping everyone fit won’t be easy.
On top of that, the Reds will still have to rely on their title rivals dropping more points. They may have drawn against Southampton at the weekend, but City are more than capable of going on another winning run.
If Klopp’s men can keep in touching distance before the trip to the Etihad in April, though, they may have a chance of lifting the title, but it is still a long shot.
