Kirkland adamant Premier League title heading to Liverpool

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland thinks the Premier League title is bound for Merseyside.

The Reds are eight points clear of Manchester City, who have struggled due to a lack of depth in defence.

Asked if the Premier League title is on its way to Anfield, Kirkland said: "I honestly do think it is.

"Last year was so unlucky. People say losing by one point was devastating, I would rather have lost by one point than be 15, 16 points behind City still.

"I think with City's injury problems they've got at the back, [Aymeric] Laporte is a huge miss, Vincent Kompany is a massive miss for them. At the back you can get at them.

"When we play them, if we can take points off them then all of a sudden you're talking double figures. Can you see us losing four or five games this season? Not the way we're playing."
