Can Liverpool win the league? 'Absolutely' says on loan star

Reina And Liverpool Warm Up

Liverpool's title bid has received the thumbs up from a loyal supporter.

Goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who is currently on loan at Napoli, has voiced his belief that the Reds can "absolutely" win the Premier League after Sunday's 3-0 win at Manchester United.

The 31-year-old has in the past expressed his disappointment at the manner in which he was loaned out to the Italian side, but Reina is nevertheless cheering Liverpool on in their bid to end over two decades without a league trophy.

The Spaniard has been extremely impressed with some of the football Brendan Rodgers' side have played, while he also believes Liverpool's remaining fixtures are easier than those of their rivals.

"Absolutely, the demonstration of football the other day it was the best signal they can win the league," he told TalkSport.

"The fixtures are a little bit easier for them than the other teams and the way they played at Old Trafford, although Man United are struggling, to go there and perform like they did and to win 3-0, it could have been more, it's never easy."

"The pace of them on one versus one and their instincts and mentality of their attacking skills is unbelievable."

"They understanding between them (Suarez and Sturridge) is incredible. Raheem is playing really well, Jordan is growing up they are a great team and they are doing well."

Whether Reina can be part of Liverpool's side next season, league title or not, is another matter, with the 31-year-old looking increasingly unlikely to return to Anfield.

His form for Serie A side Napoli, though, has been impressive this term, something that could convince Rodgers to recall the shot stopper, especially if the Reds have to deal with European football next season.

Either way Reina is likely to live on with a little bit of Liverpool spirit, as he is currently working under former Anfield boss Rafa Benitez in Naples.

The duo could not prise the Premier League title out of Manchester United hand's after coming as close as they could in 2009, but they may finally have the chance to see Liverpool lift the league trophy this term. They may even raise a glass in celebration.
