It has been another magnificent week to be a Kopite. Manchester City were pummeled at home by Leicester City and a day later Liverpool dominated against Arsenal. It is a time to celebrate. Phil McNulty has been drooling over Liverpool, claiming they have psychological and footballing supremacy over their rivals.
A decisive week
This match week could go down as a decisive one in the Premier League title race, it could be the earliest indicator that the Reds’ title challengers just aren’t up to the task.
Manchester City were once again exposed, slumping to a 5-2 victory at the hands of Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium.
A day later Liverpool capitalised, easing past Arsenal in a 3-1 win, never looking like losing the game, never looking like drawing it either.
It was another instance of the Reds demonstrating their consistency and City showing their frailties.
McNulty on Liverpool
Phil McNulty was gushing over Liverpool after their victory over Arsenal. The pundit waxed lyrical in his assessment of the game and the weekend as a whole for the BBC:
“Liverpool have taken just three games to make it clear that every single point dropped by their rivals will be a wound to any hopes they harbour of taking the Premier League title away from Anfield.
“There is a vulnerability about City, a sense they can be got at, which simply does not exist in a Liverpool side that holds psychological as well as footballing supremacy over their opponents.”
What RTK has to say
McNulty has got it spot on in his assessment of Liverpool.
One of the key reasons Liverpool have been so irresistible of late has been the psychological strength of the side.
Jürgen Klopp has drilled something into his side which sees them fight until the death, they never crumble at the first sign of adversity.
This week Liverpool conceded first but they reacted as if they were annoyed more than anything, miffed that a side would have the audacity to put one past them.
The psychological and footballing supremacy that this side has doesn’t look like disappearing any time soon. Long may they reign.
