That itís 10 years since any team retained a league title might suggest that labelling any team as a bottler is OTT.

The reality is that Liverpool do NOT have the depth of squad to compete over a long season with City. In fairness they have done well to still be in pole position but squad depth is hurting them now.

Just consider the options Liverpool have outside their Ďbestí 11 - Mignolet, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Kieta, Hendo, Sturridge, Origi, Llalana & arguably Shaq. That is it - full stop, donít think I have missed anybody

City options - Danilo, Kompany/Stones, Mangala, Otamendi, Mendy, Delph, Gundogan, Foden, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Jesus.

Some of the names on the city list are real quality players who would get a starting place on any PL or even CL team. How many of the Liverpool list would command a definite starting place? Maybe 2 at most.

That is the difference - City May have loads of funds but they spend it wisely - their back up players are real quality and ultimately that will prove to be the difference over a long season. It creates competition for places which helps the team. Can you imagine Liverpool front 3 looking over their shoulder thinking Sturridge or Origi will take their spot if they donít perform.....unlikely !!!

If Liverpool win the PL then it will be a massive achievement

I wouldnít be relying on the toffees to do us a favour even if they were capable which isnít the case.

No. Theyíre shit.

Liverpool canít be sitting around hoping for favours from Everton or any other team.

Itís in their own hands. If theyíre not good enough, itís on themselves.

Tight at the top. As it turns out Liverpool's game in hand is against Utd at Old Trafford. Interesting.

I donít think it can be labelled a bottle job until theyíve actually lost the league also there are too many games left to be making that type of call.

Contrary to belief by some managers itís a two horse race but itíll be an exciting run in especially when they both have Chelsea Utd and Spurs to play still.

Should be an exciting finish!

I actually think spurs could still finish 2nd. It depends how liverpool recover from this "blip".
