Liverpool’’s Torres tips Man-U for titleJanuary 13th, 2009 - 5:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan.13 (ANI): Liverpool striker Fernando Torres believes Manchester United are the favourites to win the Premier League title.
“Firstly United have two games in hand and if they win both they will be top of the League. That is certainly possible for a team of their quality. We respect them totally for the class of players they have. Many of them are among the best in the world. They”re the clear favourites to win the title. We”re working hard to compete with them and finish above them, and we”re on course to achieve that, The Telegraph quoted Torres, as saying. “We know the chances we have. We have to go to Old Trafford and we will play Arsenal and Chelsea at home and we shouldn”t drop more points like the other day. I think United have their chances as do Chelsea and Liverpool. We have to fight till the end and we”ll see what happens. Few teams can win the Premier League today and we can be champions this year, he added. “I think the game at Old Trafford will decide the title. If everything goes as we expect we think we will go there in a similar position to now to that game. We will have to play our game to try and get a result in a ground where in the last few years has not been good for Liverpool,” he said. (ANI)
