Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Liverpool are genuine contenders for this season’s Premier League title.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have propelled themselves into the top four courtesy of a run of six wins in eight league matches in 2014, which included a 5-1 victory over Wenger’s side at Anfield.
They trail league leaders Chelsea by four points and are three behind the second-placed Gunners.
And Wenger feels that the confidence from this run, coupled with them being unburdened by European football, means Liverpool are in the running to be champions.
“It’s very tight at the top, Liverpool are in the race, and they have an advantage as it is the only competition they play,” said Wenger.
