Carragher points to key period for City in LFC title push

With just 7 games remaining, starting with Spurs at Anfield in just over an hour and a half, the pressure is really on both the Reds and their title rivals City.

Everyone and their dog has had a say lately on who and where the title will be won and lost, and now Jamie Carragher has pointed to where he thinks Man City can drop points.

On Goals on Sunday, Carragher said: "I don’t think anyone expected anything but Man City beating Fulham on Saturday. Now this is a big game for Liverpool against Spurs.

"For Liverpool there are three really tough matches to come in Spurs, Southampton away on Friday night and Chelsea at home as well.

"After that you’re into the last four or five games of the season. The feeling is that whilst Man City are in pole position, if Liverpool can be just one point behind after these three games then it puts them in a great position to go on and win the league.

"City’s games in the last five get harder and the pressures then become a lot tougher with the Champions League ties thrown in there.

"Liverpool have the tougher fixtures at the moment but if they can win them, it will throw the onus straight back on City."

The Reds legend isn't wrong, if the team can just push through and take maximum points from the next 3 fixtures, then the pressure is suddenly all on Man City.

Of course, it's one thing saying that, another one entirely doing it. But winning today and taking maximum points is a place to start, and Klopp will hopefully have his players ready.
