Jordan Henderson gives his verdict on the Premier League title race after Liverpool drew against Manchester City
In a post-match interview with Sky Sports as quoted by Liverpoolfc.com, Jordan Henderson hinted that Liverpool would fight to the end for the Premier League title after an excruciating draw against Manchester City.
Our skipper made it clear that the Reds must stay positive and try to win their remaining games in hand if they are to pressurise Man City in the PL race this campaign. The Merseysiders came back from behind on two occasions today, to earn a point against the Citizens.
With seven games now in hand for both clubs, the race for England’s top flight is all set for a stellar showdown as we head towards the business end of the campaign. We take on the Etihad outfit once again in the FA Cup semi-final coming Saturday.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the Manchester City vs Liverpool game as quoted by Liverpoolfc.com, Henderson hinted that the Reds should now focus on the remaining games at hand. He also urged the fans and players to be positive till the end.
“Well, we’ll have to wait and see, I suppose. They don’t drop many points, of course, we know that. But, for us, we’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and keep trying to win as many games as possible. And if they do slip up, we’ve got to be there right behind them. We’ve got to continue with that, there’s still a lot of football to play. So it’s not the end of the world, we stay positive and keep going right until the end.”
Premier League party this season?
The Merseysiders only trail the Citizens by one point in the Prem at this moment. As we head towards the tail-end of the season, the Anfield outfit are still competing on several fronts. Having already bagged the EFL Cup this campaign, the Reds would be hungry for more silverware.
Liverpool are potentially on the cusp of managing a quadruple but this target would have received a minor blow as they failed to record a victory against Manchester City. This would have put them ahead of the Mancunian club.
That being said, anything is possible in the PL and the Reds would be hoping that they can take any advantage should Man City slip up in their remaining Premier League fixtures. The club from Merseyside also has the UEFA Champions League to look forward to.

Maintaining morale can be a tough task, especially with all the physical and emotional exertion of having to play so many crunch matches in a row. Liverpool have come a long way since Jurgen Klopp took over in 2015.
They have managed to create an entertaining brand of football, creating a special place in the hearts of fans across the globe. Our skipper has portrayed great leadership skills in the past and we hope that he can rally his troops as we have some pivotal matches lined up against us.
