Liverpool's chances of clinching the Premier League title have received a significant boost according to Jamie Carragher and Roy Keane with the two prominent football pundits weighing in on Manchester City's recent slip-up, which saw them drop points for the third consecutive match. The result of City's 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur has allowed Liverpool to leapfrog them in the standings, placing them just one point behind current leaders Arsenal.
Carragher, a former Liverpool player, expressed his delight at City's dropped points, stating: "For neutrals, it's good to see City drop points. You think of them winning the treble last season and you're thinking, 'Who is ever going to stop them?' You feel like you've got a title race now." He also acknowledged the resilience of both Arsenal and Liverpool, emphasizing that the race for the title could go down to the wire.
Keane, known for his blunt analysis, echoed Carragher's sentiments. He admitted that he had previously favored City to win the title but now had doubts about their ability to do so. Keane remarked: "There is a reason it hasn't been won four years in a row. I'm certainly looking at Arsenal and Liverpool."
The latest slip-up by Manchester City has injected fresh excitement into the Premier League title race. With Liverpool and Arsenal capitalizing on their rival's stumble, the competition has become more open and unpredictable. Both teams will be buoyed by City's recent form and will look to maintain their momentum as they push for top-flight glory.
Liverpool, in particular, has a history of battling for the title in tight races. Under Jürgen Klopp's leadership, it has shown resilience and determination, having previously won the league in the 2019-2020 season. The experience gained from that campaign could prove invaluable as the Reds aim to reclaim the title.

As the season progresses, all eyes will be on the top three teams: Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City.

Liverpool.com says: It can only be a good thing, of course, that Manchester City is not looking as unbeatable as it sometimes does, but Liverpool could easily have dropped some silly points this weekend as well.
