Kolo Toure has said that Liverpool is still in with a chance to become the English top flight champion this season.
In their last league outing against Aston Villa the other day, the Reds couldn’t secure 3 points. The match ended in a 2-2 draw.
Liverpool had gone into that game with the expectations of a win, but, their start was not less than a disaster. With about 10 minutes remaining in the first half, they had gone down by 0-2 and an upset seemed to be on the cards, but, they lifted their game in time and managed to level the proceedings.
The position of Liverpool in the league points table is still very good. They are at no. 4, but, the problem is the no. of points that they have got. It’s only 43. Chelsea which is just one position ahead of them in the table has got 6 more points, while, Arsenal which is topping the table has got 8 more points. At this stage of the league, these are big differences and to win the competition from here on, the Reds need to play seriously well.
Toure who played for the full 90 minutes in the game against Villa admitted that his team didn’t perform that well, but, according to him, the other title contenders can also have days like these.
Talking to the reporters at the end of the game, the 32 years old Ivorian international said, “I don’t think we are out of it. The other sides can also have tough days. We just have to forget this and get prepared for the upcoming match.”
Liverpool’s next match is a FA Cup clash against AFC Bournemouth. That game will be played at Dean Court Ground on 25th of January.
