Carragher On "The Only Chance" That Liverpool Can Win The Title

Carragher On

Fellow pundits Paul Merson and Phil Thompson also backed Man City to win the league and Man Utd to finish outside the top 6. "This is one of the best teams in Europe and to be in a group with PSG, Napoli and Liverpool is hard for us".

The Blues registered a 3-1 victory against local London rivals Crystal Palace on Sunday which took them to 2 place on the Premier League table and kept them in touching distance with leaders Manchester City two who are points ahead. The good news is Olivier Giroud is fit to return after missing the last two matches with a muscle problem so he should get a recall up front. Sane scored the sixth in stoppage-time, receiving the ball from Sterling on the edge of the area before cutting in and firing an effort past McCarthy to complete the visitor's misery.

The Blues have dropped points in just three league games and have won all their games in the cup competitions so far this season. Pep Guardiola's side also remain favourites for the league title.

The Blues - who are now unbeaten - climbed above Liverpool into second place after their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Palace started the game in brighter fashion. Trailing 1-0 with 12 minutes left on the clock at Wembley to a 2nd-minute header from Luuk de Jong, the North Londoners were staring at a group-stage exit. I'm better. In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down.

Chelsea are still hoping that Morata can develop into the world-class striker they are craving and he will become just that is he can replicate his recent form over an extended period of time.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have prepared a "powerful" package for Rabiot in an attempt to win what promises to be a competitive race to sign the French star.

Aguero reached the milestone in the second-fewest matches in Premier League history, taking only 217 matches since joining City from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011.
