Spurs boss Sherwood questions Liverpool title bottle

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has questioned whether Liverpool have the bottle to maintain their title push.

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has questioned whether Liverpool have the bottle to maintain their title push.

Sherwood captained Blackburn to the 1995 title, when Kenny Dalglish's side limped over the line after struggling to cope with the expectation - something he has warned could derail Liverpool.

"I think they have a real chance," the Spurs boss said. "It all depends on how they can hold their nerve, how many players they've got within their squad who have done it previously.

"Obviously Man City and Chelsea would have to be favourites because of the players they've got who have actually crossed that line and done it previously.

"But Liverpool have got from seventh last year and now they must be believing, with eight or nine games left, that they can actually win this Premier League title."

He continued: "After winning so many titles in their time they're very close, one point off the top.

"They're absolutely flying, they've got a strike partnership who are the best the Premier League has seen for a very long time, and they've given themselves a real chance.

"Now they have to believe that they've got something there that might fall through their grasp and might slip away.

"Believe me that's a really bad feeling to have, because perhaps you don't play with the freedom that you normally played with earlier on in the season."
