Manchester City forward Jack Grealish thinks that Liverpool will claim three wins from three in their remaining Premier League games.
In quotes from Manchester Evening News, Grealish shared his belief that The Reds won’t drop any further points in their title battle with City.
“Liverpool is a great team and I don’t think they will be slipping up again if I am honest,” said Grealish. “We have to stay on the ball and go and pick up maximum points.”
Liverpool slipped three points behind City after a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening. But Grealish is adamant that anything can still happen.
“For me, the Premier League is the best league in the world. Anything can happen in these remaining games, so we have to stay strong and keep our foot on the pedal,” said the £100m man. “We cannot take our foot off it and they are going to be three very tough games and we have to get maximum points if we want to lift the title.”
Let’s hope he’s right, Reds.
No room for error for Liverpool
Liverpool simply have no other choice but to win their last quarter of a dozen games. Saturday’s draw with Spurs has left them no margin for error.
There are some who will have taken those dropped points as a death knell for The Reds title chances. Jurgen Klopp himself said that the mood inside the press room after the game at Anfield was ‘like a funeral.‘
Grealish is right here though, all hope isn’t lost just yet. City’s next two games are away to Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United. Two teams still pushing for Europe who have both upset the odds several times before this season.
For Liverpool though, those results will be meaningless if they don’t do their own job. That has to start with three points away to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa tonight.
Villa have been bullish about their chances in the build-up to the game. With not much turnaround time between Saturday’s morale-sapping draw, Klopp may need to freshen things up a bit.
All is not lost just yet, but Liverpool are going to have to prove Grealish right if they’re to stand any chance of claiming a second Premier League title.
