The Premier League is arguably the most competitive and exciting league in the world. And with the title challenge being so strong this season, the biggest debate is: who will finish top dogs?
It was widely considered that the trophy would either end up in the Etihad Stadium or Stamford Bridge; however, recently a club well known to the average football fan, Liverpool, have re-entered the title race for the first time in many a year.
Liverpool who have been on an incredible run in the last few months with eight straight wins on the bounce have a very simplistic in theory yet difficult in practice task ahead of themselves, with it all being in their hands.
Although, Man City have two games in hand over the Reds, all the Merseyside outfit have to do is win their remaining six games and the Premier League will be theirs for the first time.
However, these six fixtures include Manchester City and Chelsea and no-one is under any illusions that the run-in will be easy, but former Liverpool player and now Kop legend Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool have enough in the tank, so to say, to take them over the edge.
Reflecting in the Monday Night Football studio, he said: "I think Liverpool will win it now" who goes on to say that in Liverpool, "the feeling before the weekend was that "we've got a chance", continuing that due to the results of the weekend and "the intensity that Liverpool played with on and off the pitch" that has in fact changed.
He then went on to say that "After this game there is a major belief that Liverpool will go on and win the league." It is evident that Carragher is of the opinion that they are in the ascendancy but Manchester City and Chelsea can't be ruled out.
This opinion doesn't seem to be completely shared with former England and Manchester United full back Gary Neville. He believes that Manchester City still have a slight advantage over Liverpool and that Liverpool is a must not lose game for City, going on to explain that the state of play "could switch in a few weeks if Liverpool beat City."
Chelsea, in my eyes, can't not be rules out although many already have. I feel that with being only two points behind Liverpool and with a vast array of world class players in their ranks, they simply cannot be ruled out of the title race.
What will happen is not for me or you to say; however, what is for sure is that we are in for one hell of a ride.
