Liverpool winger Victor Moses claims he knew that the team would win the league after his very first training session with the club.
The Chelsea loanee was well aware of the talent at the club, and could tell by the effort out on the training pitch that the team could claim their first top flight title in 24 years.
"When I first came here, I knew that Liverpool were going to win the league… honest!" Moses told the Liverpool Echo.
"Even when I spoke to the press, I said that we would win it. Just from seeing the way everyone trained, that first Liverpool training session, and the games that I played in early on, I could see the quality that we have here.
“There is huge talent at this club, and I knew that this team could go far. We are in a position now where if we win the rest of our games, we will win the Premier League. That’s not a bad position to be in, is it?”
With just three games remaining, Brendan Rodgers' side are leading the chasing pack by five points and they take on their nearest rival, Chelsea, this Sunday at Anfield.
However, Blues boss Jose Mourinho, has made his intentions clear that next week's European tie against Atletico Madrid is more important, and will therefore field a younger team this weekend.
Manchester City are six points behind the Reds, who sit on 80 points, but do have a game in hand. Despite this, Manuel Pellegrini's side would have to rely on them dropping points, which is a desperate call at this point in the season.
Although Moses is optimistic about the club's standings, the Nigerian will not feature against his parent club at the weekend, and it looks likely that he will be returning to Stamford Bridge in the summer. The winger has made just nine appearances for Liverpool and hasn't started since the beginning of December.
