Liverpool fans say that Sean Dyche, Brendan Rodgers and Chris Hughton could become legends if they help the Reds win the Premier League title.

United’s shocking performance at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening allowed Manchester City the chance to go back to the top of the Premier League.

For Jurgen Klopp and his Reds to win the title this season, they will need a favour from one of Sean Dyche, Brendan Rodgers or Chris Hughton.

Each manager will lead their teams against City before the end of the season and need to win for the sake of their own personal interests.

Liverpool fans on Twitter are desperate to see Burnley, Leicester or Brighton take points off City in the next two weeks.

One fan has said that if one of the aforementioned managers is able to do Liverpool a huge favour, they will forever be legends in the eyes of Kopites.

 

While it seems doubtful that anyone but Liverpool-associated players and managers will become legends if the Premier League title is handed to the Merseysiders, Dyche, Rodgers and Hughton can ensure they are thought of fondly from here on out.

97 points might not be enough to win the title which is a crazy thought but it highlights the quality of the Premier League these days.

There is a considerable dropoff from the top two when compared to the rest of the top six and the lower half of the table but Liverpool and City will have a combined points tally of almost 200 by the end of the season.

That is an incredible achievement regardless of who is named as champion when you consider the next highest over the last decade is the 181 points from last season and that’s only because City got 100.

The average over the last decade is 169 points shared between first and second, with the lowest 151 points from when United beat Chelsea to the title.

Regardless of how the season ends, what Liverpool have achieved should see them classified as one of the best English sides of all time.
