Few would have backed Liverpool to take Manchester City all the way to the end of the league season in the title race after, at one point, being 14 points behind the league leaders.
With Steven Gerrard set to play a potentially decisive role in which way the Premier League falls, Jordan Henderson joked he may look to give his old skipper at Anfield a call for encouragement ahead of their visit to the Etihad.
One would say that the odds are certainly stacked in the Sky Blues’ favour as things stand, though we’d be foolish to rule ourselves out of the running just yet.

Not going to make the slightest bit of difference, Manchester City are going to destroy Villa and put the media well and truly in their place, mark my words. Villa haven’t got enough and nor has slippy Gerrard. Get on with it Henderson, go and beg to be helped.
You will almost certainly win, but take Henderson’s comments for the tongue in cheek banter that they are , I doubt we will overtake city but the media are right–for once–to heap praise on us, 3 finals and taking a cracking football team to the last day deserves plenty of praise.
Yes Liverpool is the best team so far no team in the history has ever done what the Red’s have done. 👏🤝🙏🔥
