Jamie Carragher believes that the Premier League race is back on after Man City suffered a shock defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. Harry Kane scored a late winner after Liverpool came back from a goal down to beat relegation favorites, Norwich. It looked like Mahrez had salvaged a point after converting from the penalty spot in stoppage time only for Kane to score the winner on a counter.
“I’d still favor Man City with Liverpool still to come to the Etihad and I think Liverpool’s fixtures may be tougher. I certainly think for the next four or five days, the Leeds game at Anfield is more important than the cup final on Sunday against Chelsea,” Jamie Carragher said about the Premier League title race. “There was a little bit of hope that Liverpool could do something, a glimmer of hope when Man City dropped points at Southampton. It was the first time in such a long time that they hadn’t won and you very rarely see a Pep Guardiola team get pegged back so I’d still say they are very much in the hot seat.”
“Even a team of Liverpool’s quality coming here to win will not be easy but the great thing not just for Liverpool supporters but for the country is that it looks like we could have a title race on,” he added. “Four to six weeks ago we thought that wasn’t going to be the case so long may it continue.”
