Liverpool relying on Man U slip-ups to win premier league championshipMay 2nd, 2009 - 3:38 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 2 (ANI): Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez hopes of ending their 19-year wait for a league championship rest’s on Manchester United’s opponents.
He believes that even if they let him down, the rest of the Premier League will have to get used to Liverpool being a genuine force again.
Benitez knows Liverpool must win four of their remaining fixtures and hope United slip up, as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side is three points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand, The Telegraph reports
“If you want to pick some games, you would say the Manchester derby is difficult, Arsenal at home is difficult and Hull away on the last day will not be easy, as we saw last week. We have to keep winning our games and maybe we will have a chance.
“But just winning is not the most important thing. It is important to be there at the end of the season so you have a chance of winning and it is very positive for the club that we are in that position,’ Benitez said.
“Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Aston Villa will all be in the fight next year, too, but we are confident we will be contenders,” he added.
Daniel Agger, the Danish international central defender, is likely to be part of that struggle after Benitez revealed his long-awaited new contract could be signed in a matter of days. (ANI)
