Liverpool passed Sunday’s latest assignment with flying colours after a 3-0 victory against Manchester United which practically books their place in next season’s Champions League although the Reds now have their sights set higher.
The victory coupled with Chelsea’s defeat at Villa Park on Saturday mean that Liverpool sit just four points behind the leaders with a game in hand on Jose Mourinho’s team, with the latter and Manchester City still to visit Anfield this term.
The bookmakers have reacted by cutting Liverpool’s title odds and Ladbrokes online offer a standout 7/2 that the Merseyside club are left celebrating come the end of the season, with the supporters starting to believe this could be their year at long last.
The form of Luis Suarez is one reason to believe that the Reds can continue their winning run, while the defensive partnership of Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger looked rock solid against United, while it’s a settled team that are playing some inventive football under Rodgers.
However, there are three other teams that can win this season’s title and Arsenal are level on points with Liverpool after the same number of games played, so it’s a surprise to see the Gunners as big as 16/1 to claim major domestic honours this term, with Arsene Wenger’s team winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Aaron Ramsey’s return to the team could be a major boost for Arsenal although whether they can cope without Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere over the next few weeks remains to be seen, while their next Premier League match is a trip to Stamford Bridge.
As for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho might claim his team aren’t viable title contenders this term although they still occupy pole position despite Saturday’s defeat and you can get no bigger than 2/1 with William Hill that they are still top of the pile come the final reckoning.
Chelsea remain in the Champions League and are likely to be involved at the last eight stage, something which could play into Manchester City’s hands, even if they are once again missing Sergio Aguero who doesn’t seem to be able to recover from injury for any length of time.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team are once again the bookmaker favourites to become champions of England for the second time in three seasons, with Paddy Power going 6/4 that they claim the Premier League title although they will be missing Vincent Kompany for the next three matches with suspension.
