Former Premier League manager gives thoughts on why Liverpool won’t win title

Which may be good news for Jürgen Klopp and his team but there are other factors and first of them is form: since the turn of the year City have picked up an impressive 2.67 points per game while Liverpool are now on 1.78. They've been good at piling on the pressure, but now we do that to them and hopefully they feel it because we will push them the whole way.

"And Liverpool now they have to play two matches every weekend". "We don't lose our nerve". Liverpool has beaten Everton on their own turf just twice in that span, however, drawing five times. "I know people don't like it when I say that, but the wind came from all directions and you saw that in a lot situations that it didn't help any football play, especially when the ball was in the air and that was a lot".

This fixture has shown a recent trend in late winners, too.

Dejan Lovren is still an injury concern for Liverpool and looks likely to remain sidelined alongside defensive comrade Joe Gomez, while Everton will be without the services of Leighton Baines.

Ferguson's 2010/11 Premier League-winning side were the last English team to win the title and venture beyond the Champions League quarter-finals - losing to Barcelona in the final - while few will need reminding they won both tournaments in 2007/08, and lifted both as well as the FA Cup in 1999.

"I'm really disappointed about your question, really disappointed, I have to say".

"But we'll fight for everything now and we'll push them the whole way". We are offensive enough, football doesn't work like that.

"I've seen talk about maybe Van Dijk winning Premier League Player of the Year, but there should only be one victor and his name is Eden Hazard".

"I know it's a special match, a derby, but if you could put this atmosphere, 70 or 80 per cent of it, every match, then 30 or 40 per cent of our job is done, because they can push our team to win, and they can make it really hard for all our opponents, as they did this afternoon".

"We didn't give them a chance to create anything and in the second half we should have had more chances to score". At the moment, they are in a little bit of a "down" but they are still in it.
