EPL: The good and bad of pool

The New Paper | Ray Houghton | Wednesday, Apr 16, 2014

It wasn't entirely convincing, but the dream is on.

After watching Liverpool's 3-2 win over Manchester City at Anfield yesterday, all I can say is that the title is in the hands of the Reds.

Brendan Rodgers' men will win their first league title in 24 years if they win their remaining four games, and you have to say they are favourites.

You look at those four games - Norwich, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle - and even if they draw at home to Chelsea on April 27 - I think they'll get maximum points from the other games to see themselves through.

I don't expect Man City and Chelsea to win all their matches, either.

While you have to laud Liverpool's fighting spirit to score the winning goal in the 78th minute last night, the game also showed how they could still self-destruct.

 

FIGHT BACK

There was an air of inevitability around Anfield when City started their fightback.

You could see how City grew stronger even towards the end of the first half, and forced Simon Mignolet into a couple of good stops.
