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.
Sean Dyche, Brendan Rodgers or Chris Hughton could become Liverpool legends, forever.

So Sean Dyche is a Liverpool fan and City play away to Burnley, Leicester are fighting for 7th; who have beaten City before and is managed by Brendan Rodgers, Brighton will be fighting for survival.
If you think I’m clutching at everything right now, you’re 100% spot on.

If Dyche or Rodgers or both can get a result against City in their next games I'll order a life size cut of them and mount it on my wall like a shrine with fairy lights and a plaque underneath which says Jesus

3 game shootout with City, starting at Anfield tomorrow.
Let’s win our games and leave the rest to Dyche, Rodgers and Hughton.

Leicester will beat Man City and Brendan Rodgers will wander into the City dressing room and take 3 envelopes from his pocket and rip them open. Each one will say Raheem Sterling inside

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.
