Anfield: Liverpool could end their wait for the league title

Sky Sports News Radio's Ben Ransom is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk's James Dixon and Sky Sports' Pete O'Rourke to discuss the weekend's Premier League action, including Liverpool's title charge following their fine win over Tottenham, the uncertainty surrounding Tottenham and the winners and losers in the relegation dogfight.

Reds rising

The trio praise Liverpool after their impressive 4-0 win over Tottenham, with Ben and Pete sensing a change around the club as the Reds moved into pole position for that elusive first top-flight title since 1990. The club's continued ascent is also discussed by the three, as Brendan Rodger's and his men continue to take the spot light with their attacking performances.

Six of the best?

With six games to go Liverpool fan Pete looks ahead to the Reds' crucial game against Manchester City as potentially the "game of the season" and the key fixture in the race to become Champions. Ben and James rule out Chelsea's chances for league silverware, highlighting Jose Mourinho's eagerness to rule out the Blues earlier on in the season as a policy that backfired.

Tottenham's troubles

James questions the Tottenham players desire against Liverpool in the 4-0 defeat, while Ben queries Tim Sherwood's decision to take to the stands during the game. The trio go on to discuss the rumours surrounding Louis Van Gaal taking the Spurs helm with Pete supporting the potential appointment of the current Netherlands head coach.

Relegation dog fight

All three have their pick on who is for the drop in the Premier League with the trio agreeing that Fulham will be the first to go. Following Cardiff's last-minute recovery, snatching a draw at West Brom, James believes the Bluebirds have given themselves a real chance of staying up as well as dealing a hammer blow to the Baggies ambitions in the top flight.

Aerial protest

The protest at Old Trafford also comes under scrutiny by Ben and Pete who both disapprove with banner flown over the ground and Pete argues that he deserves until January to have the chance to make his mark on the side. James and Pete assess Manchester United's chances against Bayern Munich with James writing off United, but Pete says the pressure is off and could work in their favour.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
