Kirkland: Liverpool too far ahead in the Premier League

You may have forgotten that Liverpool are currently sitting 8 points clear of last season's champions Man City, with just 8 games played. What's that, you haven't?

Good, because neither have we. But it does seem that a lot of supposedly knowledgeable pundits have, with many claiming that the title race is already over.

The latest in that long line is former Liverpool goalie Chris Kirkland. He reckons that Jurgen Klopp's side are already too far ahead and can't be caught now.

When asked if the Premier League was finally on its way to Anfield he said, via Sky Sports: "I honestly do think it is.

"Last year was so unlucky. People say losing by one point was devastating, I would rather have lost by one point than be 15, 16 points behind City still.

"I think with City's injury problems they've got at the back, [Aymeric] Laporte is a huge miss, Vincent Kompany is a massive miss for them. At the back you can get at them.

"When we play them, if we can take points off them then all of a sudden you're talking double figures. Can you see us losing four or five games this season? Not the way we're playing."

With another 10 days of the international break remaining until Liverpool are back in action, Reds fans will be champing at the bit to see the team take to the field at Old Trafford.
