Liver­pool pil­ing up the points

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

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.
