Judging by the reaction of many, it would have appeared to the naked eye as if Liverpool lost the Premier League title on Sunday afternoon.
Held to a 0-0 draw by bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, the Reds still returned to the top of the Premier League table in the aftermath of the result, now leading Manchester City by just one point at the top, which has been cut down in recent weeks.
Still, leading they are and Liverpool certainly would’ve been content with the position they are currently in had it been offered to them at the start of the season. With 11 games to go in the Premier League, the fate of the title remains in their hands and they have some winnable games coming up.
Facing Watford (H), Everton (A), Burnley (H) and Fulham (A) in their next four fixtures, wins in each game would leave them in a very healthy position heading into the final international break of the season, where they return to face Tottenham.
Keeping their nerve over these next few weeks while City seem to have the momentum with them could well be the key to deciding whether the Premier League trophy remains in Manchester, or heads to Liverpool for the first time.
They may have returned to the top of the table, but was it a good point for Liverpool or two dropped?
