Ex-Arsenal and City striker: Liverpool have 'great chance' to win title

Niall Quinn has stated that Brendan Rodgers’ charges have the opportunity to become English champions this year.

In one of the tightest Premier League title races in the recent memory, Liverpool are still in the mix to finish first, despite being fourth at the moment.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have been in sparkling form of late, and recorded a last-minute victory over Fulham last night to keep them in the hunt.

Many are tipping either Manchester City, Chelsea or Arsenal for the title, but one former Gunner and Citizens man believes the Reds are right in the mix.

Niall Quinn has been talking up the Merseysiders. The retired Republic of Ireland international spent seven years at Arsenal, before moving to City and spending six years with the Manchester club. However, he feels that Liverpool could spring a surprise.

"They have been a fantastic addition to a great season," the Irishman told talkSPORT.

"They are playing brilliant football. They have got some problems at the back, but if they iron that out and start keeping clean sheets, not only are they right in it, they have a great chance of winning it."

Liverpool still have a number of the main contenders to play at Anfield and as such have a good opportunity to dictate just where they will finish this year.
