Liverpool Players Are Getting Cocky
Amazing, huh? They're still one point behind and we still have a game in hand over them but Liverpool players are already gloating that they are better than Manchester United. According to Xabi Alonso, they'd deserve to win the title.
"Liverpool have demonstrated this season that they are superior to United in the two matches between the teams. Nobody could dispute that, but now it is a real race for the title."
"United are defending champions and I feel they will be more nervous. I feel we deserve to win it by the way we have already played this season, particularly in the big games."
OK, I accept that they have little experience in how you win league titles so here's a little hint: the team that get the most points win it. As easy as that. If it would be a matter of doing the double over United then Citeh would have wrapped up the league in February last season.
Overconfidence could still well end Liverpool's challenge: as their fans, their players are getting cocky after two good games. Bit premature, isn't it?
