Andy Robertson explains why Liverpool could win the Premier League this season

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Liverpool FC - Premier League

It’s going to be a very merry Christmas for Liverpool this year, that’s for sure.

The Reds sit top of the Premier League, four points behind Manchester City as they embark on the festive period.

Not only that but Jurgen Klopp’s men are the only side in the top four divisions who are yet to taste defeat this season.

And it doesn’t look like they’ll be falling to a loss any time soon.

The Reds beat Wolves 2-0 at Molineux on Friday night, goals from Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk sealing the win.

And after Man City suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace the following day, they find themselves very much in cruise control.

But can Liverpool finally put an end to their 28-year title drought?

Well, one man who certainly thinks so is full-back Andy Robertson who revealed one key factor that could see them cross the finish line as champions in May.

The Scotland international believes that honesty amongst the players is the reason why Liverpool are flying so high this season.

He said via the Liverpool Echo: “We have a fantastic captain in Hendo (Jordan Henderson). This was his 300th game for the club and that’s a great achievement.” 

“We’ve got Milly (James Milner) behind him as well and he’s a top pro, everyone looks up to him.

“Virgil is captain for his country so there are plenty of leaders on the park.

“I’m including Dejan (Lovren) in that as well. The more leaders we have got on the park the better as far as I’m concerned.

“There were a couple of arguments out there against Wolves – a couple of things that needed to be said and they were said.

“We all have the attitude that if someone says something to you, you have to take it on the chin. If you don’t agree with it, you deal with it at full-time or half-time and speak to one another.

“We have spoken together as a team. We do discuss things. We have said that it’s about having that honesty between us.

“I think that’s something the lads have done really well since the start of the season. It shows respect between us.”

That would explain Henderson’s pop at van Dijk against Napoli, then.

Anyway, the Reds are well on their way to their 19th league title and the last time they went 18 games unbeaten, they finished as champions.

And if the players can maintain the bond they have between them, they should end the season top of the pile.

For now though, attentions turn to Boxing Day where Klopp’s men welcome Newcastle to Anfield, hoping to extend that unbeaten run.

Liverpool fans, do you think your team can win the league this season?
