Liverpool too far ahead in Premier League title race, says Chris Kirkland
Liverpool are too far before their Premier League competitions to be captured this season, according to former Reds goalkeeper Chris Kirkland.
Last weekend moved eight points clear of Manchester City after the defending champions suffered a shock defeat at the Etihad to Wolves.
Liverpool held a guide over City midway through last season before losing the title by a point on this campaigns final day.
However, Kirkland thinks his former team are too far ahead this year to let another comeback to City.
When asked if the Premier League title is really on its way to Anfield, Kirkland said:I do believe its.
Last year was so unlucky. People today state losing by one stage was catastrophic, I would rather have lost by one point compared to be 15, 16 points behind City still.
I think with Citys injury issues theyve got at the trunk, [Aymeric] Laporte is a big miss, Vincent Kompany is a huge overlook for these. In the back its possible to get .
If we play with them, if we could take them off all of a sudden youre talking double amounts. Can you find us losing five or four games this year? Not the way we are playing.
Liverpool have the opportunity to break the Premier League record of 18 wins and now have won eight of the league games this year.
The Reds can accommodate Citys document should they overcome bitter rivals Manchester United in OId Trafford on October 20, live on Sky Sports.
What a spot to do it. You wouldnt put it beyond them, added Kirkland.
Manchester United are going through a difficult spell but Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] will be certain theyre up for this particular game.
The fans know what that means but I expect people to move there and get a result, I simply dont believe that they can stop us.
How we proceed forward, how we defend, we are solid throughout the pitch. I believe we will find the three points.
