Liverpool’s Rafa’s refuses to concede Man U betterMay 16th, 2009 - 2:23 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 16 (ANI): Liverpool coach Rafa Benitez continues to believe that his club’s playing style is far better than what is on offer from Manchester United, notwithstanding the fact that the latter is closing on three of the five soccer titles up for grabs.
“It’s the team that has more points, that’s all. Sometimes they can be the best at the beginning, in the middle or maybe with consistency, but it just means they have more points. It depends on the time of the season. I don’t think I ever said we were playing the best out of everyone, maybe just at certain moments. I do have a lot of respect for the other teams, but to say who is the best at one moment is not easy - there are a lot of good teams in the Premier League,” The Sun quoted Rafa, as saying.Liverpool have scored more goals, lost fewer games - just two - and rattled up a better goal difference than the rest.
Victory in their last two ties, against West Brom and Tottenham, would also earn them a club record haul of 86 points. That would beat the 82 they managed in the 2005-06 campaign.
If they avoid defeat in the last two matches, they will also become the only side to lose that few and fail to lift the title. (ANI)
