Big Six? It's all about the Premier League's Big Three

12 February 2019

"So Liverpool could actually win the league that way".

The Dutchman told Jurgen Klopp that he was well enough to play and then produced an excellent performance, including a classy finish for his second goal of the season as Liverpool cruised to a 3-0 victory.

"I remember when Blackburn got over the line in 1994/95, they had a bit of a lead and they just got over the line in the end".

Liverpool are going to have to "win every single game" if they are to fend off the challenge of Manchester City and land the Premier League title, says Graeme Souness.

Keita had a hand in all three Liverpool goals, providing the pass to team mate James Milner, whose cross to Liverpool's Senegalese winger Sadio Mane was headed in for Liverpool's first goal.

Manchester United (a rejuvenated, hungry, attacking Manchester United) v Liverpool is massive and will have a huge sway on proceedings.

I really feel like Manchester City will do it now.

Pep Guardiola will defend his title.

He can afford to do that as Liverpool are not involved in next weekend's FA Cup, meaning they return to action in the Champions League at home to Bayern Munich on February 19.

But, looking at the form, and the run-in, I'm going to plump for Liverpool ... just.

"City today have won 6-0 and you're thinking, with it being almost 50/50 in possession, were they that good?" Last season the Champions League went well and we dropped a lot of points in the league.

Of their last 12 matches in all competitions, City have won 11. I didn't train on Friday and I didn't sleep at the hotel either because they thought I might infect other players.

It will be because of these games (and squad depth) that they are not champions this season and that will be a shame.

Liverpool signed Keita from RB Leipzig for £52.75m but he has not yet caught up to the pace of the English game, despite showing promise in his early Premier League outings.

Despite Liverpool playing some brilliant stuff and deservedly racing ahead at Christmas, for me the victor will be Manchester City.

'In terms of the players we've not seen any difference in any of the staff and that feeds into the players and we've not changed; whether we draw, win or lose it doesn't change.

Their game plan is so relentless and they play with such enormous confidence, a slight wobble really wont affect them as much as it will Liverpool.

"What will happen in Merseyside, as it did in Manchester all those years ago, is you will be walking down the street and people will be saying "I think we can do it, go on let's do it this year".
