Liverpool piling up the points
Can Liverpool win the League? The Premier League title is now Liverpool’s to lose, but do they have the stamina to go the distance? Eight of the last 10 teams to top the table at Christmas have gone on to win the league and there is no reason why Liverpool should not maintain the trend. Nerves could play a part for a club without a championship in almost 30 years and it is also an argument that Jurgen Klopp’s high-octane approach to football demands a lot from his players, so there is a danger they could run out of gas when the race really gets going from March. This, though, is an era of supremely fit footballers, so Klopp, his players and the Liverpool supporters should not and will not worry about that now.
