Liverpool can challenge Manchester City and Chelsea at Anfield
The title dream is drawing closer for the Reds, but Raheem Sterling believes Liverpool will have to continue with their formidable home form to keep the hopes alive. Liverpool have the chance to end their 24-year long barren run for a league title, but before that they must defeat Manchester City and Chelsea.
With six games remaining in the season, Liverpool have returned to the top of the Premier League table. A 4-0 win at Anfield against Tottenham Hotspur once again showed the might the Reds can boast about at home, but the real challenges lay ahead. Both title contenders, Manchester City and Chelsea are yet to visit Anfield.
So it will be a make or break situation for Liverpool this month as title race nears its conclusion. Liverpool will win the Premier League title if they can win the rest of the game, but setting such a target in mind is a task easier said than done.
Liverpool has come out victorious from 14 of their 16 Premier League games at home this season. Moreover, the Reds have only faced defeat once in all competitions over the last 12 years. Brendan Rodgers’ side has dropped only five points at home this season and are primed for strong performance against title contenders.
The 19-year-old winger, Sterling has been proved himself to an important part of the Liverpool team this season, a team that has dropped only four points in 13 Premier League games since the start of the year. Sterling believes Liverpool can defeat any team including Manchester City and Chelsea at Anfield.
Winger Sterling, 19, has been a key figure in a team who have dropped four points in 13 Premier League matches since the beginning of 2014, and feels Liverpool can beat anyone at Anfield, including City and Chelsea.
“With the remaining games, it is going to be difficult with those two coming here,” Sterling said. “But we’ll take it as it comes as we really fancy ourselves against anyone coming here. We will take it step by step and do the business when they come.
“I think as the season goes on we have gained a bit more belief but we can’t get ahead of ourselves. We have to take it game by game. But coming to the last six games there is a really good atmosphere at the training ground.”
