We Go Again
Liverpool have lost their advantage in the title race after losing against Chelsea and their hopes were dashed that neighbours Everton would do them a favour against Manchester City but Manuel Pellegrini’s men won their toughest fixture left 3-2 to put them top of the table on goal difference with only two games to play.
Brendan Rodgers’ men have to lift themselves after a week of a disappointment to face Tony Pulis’ Crystal Palace away from home and it won’t be easy. Pulis and his players have been amazing to pull themselves clear of relegation when they looked favourites to go down earlier in the season and their tremendous run of form was only halted last week when they lost to Manchester City.
But it will be interesting to see if Rodgers can lift his players for such a tough fixture to keep Liverpool’s title hopes alive. If The Anfield side can win then it will put the pressure back on City for their home game against Aston Villa and pressure can do strange things to players.
The Palace game will be another test of Liverpool’s character and they have proved for most of the season that they haven’t lacked this.
If Liverpool can win at Palace then I believe the title race will be far from over with City having to play two games in the space of five days and the pressure will be on them because they are hot favourites to win the Premiership.
There might just be another twist in this season’s title race.
