That could very well be why we end up Champions; two goals within the opening half hour puts Liverpool firmly in command against Manchester City at Anfield as the visitors stuttered and stalled their way through what’s been an uncomfortable first half.
Two former City players get ready
We’ve spent the vast majority of the season playing down our chances, discounting our immense run of form and patiently waiting for the worst to play itself out. After too many years saying that this year was the one where Liverpool re-assert their dominance and finally claim their first title of the Premier League era, it’s been a long, strange ride, but it looks like we’ve finally arrived at the station.
In what will be the Reds last match before the 25th Anniversary of the Hillsborough Stadium disaster, it’s only fitting that they sit top of the table and poised to continue their run of nine-wins on the hop. Win, lose or draw, the atmosphere promises to be something out of this world, and Manchester City — early favorites to reclaim the crown they lost to cross-town rivals United last year — have what’s sure to be their most difficult game of the season ahead of them.
Kompany could be a major doubt
With Sunday’s trip to Anfield the biggest match of the season thus far for both Manchester City and Liverpool, the visitors have apparently been handed a blow before they’ve even boarded the coach with captain Vincent Kompany a doubt for tomorrow’s early kick-off.
The Belgian, a formidable rock for the Blue half of Manchester since signing from German side Hamburg for a fee believed to be around £6mil, fell awkwardly during training this morning and had to be helped from the pitch by his teammates. This, of course, comes as bad news for City boss Manuel Pellegrini whose side had been tipped to win the title from the word GO. The Citizens hold two matches in hand over Brendan Rodgers team, but if the Reds win all of their remaining matches, there’s no way for the Manchester outfit to overhaul them — which makes tomorrows meeting all the more important.

Liverpool may have already downed West Ham United 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground, but no one told the Travelling Kop to stop singing – so they just kept on going.
This ain’t over
Sitting top of the Premier League going into Sunday’s clash with Manchester City, you’d be forgiven if you predicted at the beginning of the campaign that the standings would look a touch different come the middle of April; only a soothsayer, or the chronically optimistic, would have predicted that Liverpool would be at the summit.
With Arsenal all but out of the race, the Reds have Manuel Pellegrini’s side and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea for company at the top — strange bedfellows indeed. With five matches left to go, and the Citizens in hot pursuit, this weekend’s early kick off could play a huge role in deciding where the title goes, though the Manchester City boss is refusing to buy into the media hype and rule it the title decider.
