Liverpool might be 12 points behind leaders Arsenal in the English premier League but the Reds, true to their name and history, are refusing to admit that they are out of the title race. Goal.com quotes Jamie Carragher as saying that although it would be difficult for them to go out and win the domestic league this season, it is not at all impossible.
This is what the Liverpool defender told Sky Sports:
Obviously it’s disappointing to fall away a bit in the league but we’re still only half way through. There’s still a long way to go. Obviously we’re outsiders now but we still want to make a challenge. The season’s still well alive. It’ll be difficult, I’m not kidding anyone. It’s not just the points but that there is three other teams above us at the moment. There’s no point throwing the towel in, just keep going and try and win the next game. By the time there are eight to ten games left we might have pulled half of that back. It might be down to five or six points and you might be back in it then.
Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has consistently reiterated that his team are still in the title race and although mathematically the Merseysiders are, yet it would require a dramatic withering of form of both Arsenal and Manchester United for Liverpool to catch them up. But as it appears, Liverpool are praying for such a dip in form of both the teams.
