Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp is convinced Jurgen Klopp's side will win the Premier League title.
Klopp’s men have stuttered in recent games, after being held by Leicester and West Ham.
The Reds missed a chance on Monday night at the London stadium to extend their lead to five points ahead of Manchester City - who need a win over Everton tonight to move to the top of the table on goal difference, and former England international has backed Liverpool to become champions for the first time in 29 years.
Redknapp told the Daily Mail: 'I would rather be in Liverpool's position but there are issues, particularly at right back.
'With Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold injured, why would you let Nathaniel Clyne go to Bournemouth? Jordan Henderson and James Milner have had to fill in at right back.
'How many times did West Ham attack down Milner's wing? They targeted him and Leicester did the same to Henderson last week.'
When asked if Pep Guardiola's Citizens have got their swagger back, he replied: 'Ask me again after they have faced Everton and Chelsea. They have recently lost to Newcastle and I don't buy the argument that Pep Guardiola pulled off a tactical masterstroke to beat Arsenal. City beat a poor team. You do not radically change your team and shape if all is well.
'Both City and Liverpool have started to panic recently. They must be relieved that Manchester United are so far behind.
'Where City have the advantage is that they can throw a fresh Kevin De Bruyne — the best midfielder in the league — into a title race.'
