Ian Rush still believes Liverpool can win their 19th English league title, 19 years to the day since he scored a goal which helped clinch championship number 18.
Bitter rivals Manchester United will join the Reds on 18 titles if they finish top of the Barclays Premier League this season, but Rush is adamant the race is far from over yet, with Sir Alex Ferguson's side still having to play Arsenal and Manchester City in their remaining five games.
Rush, whose goal against QPR on April 28, 1990 secured that year's First Division championship, wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: "I genuinely do not believe this title race is over. United have to face a derby match still."
He added: "If Liverpool were ahead in the title race, the last thing they would want is a derby against Everton. But United have to face Manchester City plus an Arsenal side on a 20-match unbeaten run.
"All Liverpool can do is keep taking points and not worry about United.
"Liverpool are back at Anfield this weekend with a good chance of another three points (against Newcastle).
"Everyone remembers earlier this season when Liverpool did a demolition job on Newcastle at St James' Park when a 5-1 win could have been 10.
"I do not want Newcastle to go down having played for them, but like every Liverpool fan I want them beaten on Sunday.
"Because if Liverpool can keep winning there will be twists and turns in this race yet, believe me."
