Liverpool have had a great Christmas and it’s also been a great couple of weeks for Spurs. Spurs and Man City could still be in the running for the title.
Liverpool have not won the league since 1990, with club legend Kenny Dalglish leading them to the success 28 years ago.
In 2014 Liverpool finished two points behind winners City but Gerrard’s slip at Anfield cost his side as they failed to win two of their last three games.
Liverpool are the only team in the league who have not lost a game all season. City, Chelsea and Tottenham have all seen their unbeaten runs end over the Christmas period.
