A bookmaker has already started paying out on Liverpool to win the Premier League


Has there ever been a better time to be a Liverpool fan?

Jurgen Klopp's Reds are eight points clear at the top of the league, having racked up 37 points out of a possible 39 this season and look unstoppable on the pitch.

They are now the overwhelming favourites to lift the Premier League in May and finally end their 30-year-long title drought.

They just refuse to accept they are beaten and their relentless pursuit of three points never ceases for the full ninety minutes and beyond.

Having come so agonizingly close to clinching the title last season, the Reds look a team possessed this time out, hell-bent on delivering the prize the Anfield faithful have craved for so long.

It is hard to see how they can be stopped as, even when they are alarmingly off-colour - as they were against Crystal Palace on Saturday - they still find a way to win.

Their simple refusal to be beaten has even led some to believe that they already have one hand on the title, with major bookmakers Betway already paying out early on the Reds winning the title.


According to Betway's Alan Alger, the betting house simply don't see how Liverpool can be caught.

"Liverpool started the season as 9/4 second-favourites to win this year's title, but have looked unstoppable since the opening game.

It's hard to see them dropping points many times this season, with yesterday's win extending their incredible form.

"We know there is risk involved, but this Liverpool team is doing all the right things and winning games in the style of champions.

"We believe the club has one hand on the trophy already."

Crystal Palace v Liverpool FC - Premier League

We're not so sure - November seems frightfully early to be calling any title race at a close, no matter how good the leaders may look at the time.

They do have a point though - Liverpool have found a way to bat away everything that has been thrown at them this season and have come out unscathed and still on top.

Their dismantling of main title rivals Manchester City spoke volumes but there are still 71 points to play for and anything could happen.

If Betway are to be believed though, it really is Liverpool's year.
