Gary Neville: Liverpool won't win the Premier League

Manchester United veteran says Liverpool should be happy with their lot.

The prospect of Liverpool winning the league before the season began would not have been one Gary Neville could have expected to be considering in March.

Yet here we are and the Reds lie in second position, in red hot form - but the former Manchester United captain doubts they will be able to capitalise upon it.

Asked in a Twitter Q&A over the weekend whether the title was possible for Liverpool, he replied:

Roughly translated as, 'pay yourselves on the back for getting this far, but don't get ahead of yourselves'.

Despite the fact Chelsea are presently seven points ahead, Liverpool do have one game in hand.

Manchester City also lurk with three games in hand on Chelsea, but crucially Liverpool play both sides at Anfield. Arsenal must travel to Chelsea and host City, so if results fall right it could yet be the Reds holding the initative into the final month of the season.

Neville's Manchester United sit in sixth place, 11 points behind Liverpool. The two sides face off in the next game at Old Trafford, a game which if Liverpool win, the former United man may just have to admit it's gearing up to be the Merseyside club's year...
