Carragher: If Liverpool don’t beat Man City at Anfield, the title race is over

Posted by

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes failure to beat Manchester City at home this weekend will end the Reds’ Premier League title race.

Pep Guardiola’s side currently sit seven points ahead of the reigning champions and have a game in hand, a victory at Anfield for the Sky Blues could see them to a 13-point lead.

For Liverpool, 15 league games remain after this weekend’s heavyweight clash which likely wouldn’t give even the best team in the world enough wiggle room to overtake.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher states “if there’s any hope of winning the title, Liverpool have to beat City on Sunday” – you can hear more from the former defender in the video below:

It’s a pretty salient point by Carragher, if we’re being honest, but it does highlight the magnitude of this weekend’s game against City.

If we snatch all three points inside the red cauldron, it’ll put us just four points the league leaders – and even though they’ll have a game in hand, it’ll keep the pressure on them.

The players won’t need to be told how important the match is, they already know it’s simply a must-win clash.

  1. Utter nonsense. It already doesn’t matter. Our only realistic goal is Top4. Zero chance for title. Common now… losing back to back hone games against Burnley and Brighton and you want to hope for titles? Jesus.. the team was in clear regress from the resumption of last season.
    Klopp’s demanding style and the thinness of the squad already took a physical and mental toll. Add the incredible injuries this season and we are toast. Of the top teams in the land we have the most threadbare squad and so we have been found out. It is what it is. Need to fight for ToP4 and hope against hope that next summer FSG will decide to invest. We need to get rid of Matip, Ox, Keita, Shaq, Origi while Gino goes on his own. So we have a few key pieces to replace: top CB, creative midfielder, true #9 and one 1-2 squad players who at least unlike the above mentioned can stay fit and help when needed. Anything short of this and we are back to middle table also runs..
