Carragher: Only three things can stop Liverpool winning title

Jamie Carragher has named the three things that stand between Liverpool and the Premier League title.

The Reds are unbeaten so far this season and could extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to nine points over second-placed Tottenham if they beat Manchester City on Thursday night.

That would also mean they increased their lead to ten points over Pep Guardiola’s side and Carragher has revealed the only three things he thinks can stop Liverpool.

“The first two are obvious and considerable – Manchester City and Spurs,” Carragher wrote in his column with the Telegraph.

“This brings us to what some see as Liverpool’s third barrier to achieving that ambition.

“The club itself. Will they thrive or succumb under the weight of expectation?

“I have been hearing an unofficial history of Liverpool title challenges over the last few weeks.

“It is the story of the seasons in 2002, 2009 and 2014 where having played their way into a strong position, the emotional intensity, pressure and general nervousness got the better of the club. The players, staff and fans ended up wanting it too much, generating hysterical frenzy on matchdays. Eventually it went wrong.”
