BBC pundits pick out key advantage Liverpool have in title race

November 4, 2019


  It’s advantage Liverpool in the Premier League title race.   At least that’s the opinion of BBC pundits Dion Dublin and Danny Murphy   The Reds maintained their four point lead at the top of the table in a thrilling 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday  It was a result made all the more impressive as they had to come from behind, before fending off a late scare to seal the points   And Liverpool Echo report that former Reds player Murphy now believes they will go all the way  Speaking on Match of the Day 2 on Sunday, Murphy said: “I said last night that now I believe that Liverpool are going to win it   Virgil van Dijk can be best Premier League defender EVER, says Liverpool old boy  “And I mean that because of things going for them even when they’re playing not so well and winning games  “Although I am aware they’ve not been there before and that’s very important so it might get edgy as the season goes on, no matter who the opposition is  “Because when you know as a footballer you’ve got to go out and win – and you might be eight games away, seven games away – it’s going to be tough  “But I think it’s fascinating and I think it’s great that we’ve got this healthy competition  “I actually think, if you look at the fixture list now and analyse it, I think Liverpool have got the easier run-in ”  It’s something Murphy is not alone in thinking, as fellow guest Dublin admitted he also believes Liverpool will go all the way, even if he thinks City have a stronger squad  “I believe that City have the best squad in the league and possibly are the strongest team in the league,” Dublin said  “But at this present time, because of where Liverpool are, I’m with Danny. I think Liverpool have got that ascendancy  “The thing that has been the difference this year for Liverpool is not conceding  “Yesterday they conceded three goals at home which isn’t great. As a manager in this situation, you’d rather win 1-0 than concede three goals  “I’m hoping it is just one of those days that happen and can happen at any point in the season  “I still think that you’d rather be in Liverpool’s shoes than Man City’s as Pep has said  “It’s going to be nip and tuck.  “It’s impossible to look at the fixtures that remain and pick out the easier games  “It never has been like that and never will be like that. The two managers will get fed up asking the same questions   Liverpool hero challenges today’s side to become legends for life with title win  “When you’re in that situation with a team going for the championship all you can concentrate on, the old cliche in football, the next game is important and when we get to the other side of that game then you address the issues That’s as far as you look.  “If you have a chance I’d rather be in Liverpool’s shoes with their four-point advantage Hopefully, it was just a blip yesterday.”  “Man City have an opportunity to win four trophies, that is what you want You’ve got Aguero, you’ve got Jesus, you’ve De Bruyne.  Asked if it could be a distraction, he said: “No, I dont think so It’s what you want as a player, it’s a dream.

That is where you want to be.”  “You want to be involved in everything if you can, it becomes a problem if you get injuries to your key men But for a player they want to be involved and it will be very little training.
