Neville on LFC title chances: 'I don't think they'll lose it from here'
It's obvious all hyperbole, and even a slight bit of jinxing us, but former Man Utd captain Gary Neville doesn't think Liverpool will lose the title from our current dominant position.
After having already drops 2 points at home to Spurs and then lost away to Norwich City this season, Man City went and lost again yesterday, this time at home to Wolves.
That makes it 8 dropped points from their first 8 games. They're currently a huge 4 points worse off than the same stage last season and have so far only played one of the traditional top 6. And that was a currently dysfunctional Spurs who took a point from them.
Liverpool, on the other hand, are currently sitting pretty with 24 points from a possible 24 and despite not playing great in recent games, are creating an aura of being able to find a way to win regardless of the situation.
The Reds are themselves actually 4 points better off than last season and appear to have only improved, whilst Guardiola's team appear to have actually regressed since last season.
So it's obvious why Neville made that statement after 'Super Sunday' last night. He said: "I don't think they'll lose it from here.
"30 games to go, I did the Everton/City game last week and City are not right.
"They're not right, they've set such a high standard. The back four isn't right. They're conceding chances, they just didn't concede chances last year and the year before that.
"They're not right, they're not like they were. They set such high standards and Liverpool matched that standard barring a hair's breadth last season.
"If City drop below that and I have to say, not replacing Kompany now and that injury to Laporte is a big problem for them because they look vulnerable and City haven't shown vulnerability for two years.
"Now they're vulnerable and teams will believe they can beat them. Everton last week had a chance, they didn't win it in the end because some of City's play was fantastic but they had a chance.
"Liverpool are definitely big favourites but van Dijk gets injured, Salah gets injured, all of a sudden it changes again. There is a long way to go but they are clear favourites."
