Despite 5th-placed Liverpool being 13 points behind Chelsea with 14 games left to play, Liverpool legend John Barnes still believes Liverpool can catch Chelsea in the title race. Barnes insists the title race starts in March.
“I don’t think Chelsea are out of sight but Liverpool need to improve – the title race starts in March,” Barnes told Standard Sport.
“Liverpool can still finish in the top four if everyone gets behind Jurgen Klopp, who is a very good coach.
“Unfortunately we didn’t get anyone in January. Signings would have helped but it’s not all doom and gloom.
“We haven’t got a huge squad so with a 14-15 man squad they will be tired. Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all have bigger squads. City can take out [Sergio] Aguero and bring in [Gabriel] Jesus.”
It’s definitely all over for Liverpool in the title race as they can’t catch the Blues. Liverpool should concentrate on finishing in the top four and forget about catching Chelsea.
