Can Liverpool win the Premier League?

Liverpool's 5-1 win over Arsenal has put them only five points behind the Gunners - and six behind leaders Chelsea. Can they win the title?

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side sent out a huge statement on Saturday afternoon as they thrashed Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield.

The result moved them to within five points of the Gunners - with Arsene Wenger's side yet to host Manchester City & United at home, while trips to White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge also lurk on the horizon.

Chelsea and City, meanwhile, will only be six and five points above the Reds respectively - and still have to visit Anfield before the end of the league season.

And with Liverpool's last two home results being a 4-0 win against Everton and Saturday's emphatic triumph over Arsenal, one wouldn't rule out their chances of going all the way just yet.

In fact, of their 13 home games, Rodgers' side have won 11 of them, drawing once and losing just once, too. Only Manchester City and Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side have managed to better that before this weekend.

The one thing holding any potential title bid back for Liverpool is their away form, with the Reds having won just four times in 12 on the road.

But with the likes of Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling, Martin Srktel and many more firing from all cylinders, Liverpool have no one to fear.

And if they can dismantle the league-leaders within just 20 minutes, surely anything is possible.
