Derby's McEveley backs Liverpool for title

Derby County fullback Jay McEveley admits Liverpool are title contenders after last week's 6-0 drubbing.

"If you look at the game against Liverpool, we gave silly goals away but we probably lost to one of the title contenders," McEveley said.

"They were on form and when you catch a team like that on form on their own turf then it's always going to be difficult whether you are an established Premier League side or not.

"I don't like saying it but I think Liverpool can win the title to be honest with you.

"My mates are Liverpool and Everton fans but I'm getting a lot of stick from Liverpool fans because of the result.

"They are saying `we are looking better this season' and I can't deny that."
