Jose Mourinho’s men still have to come to Anfield on April 27th, whilst Manchester City — currently two points behind Liverpool, but with two games in hand, visit the Reds on April 13th.
It sets up a very exciting end to the season for the Premier League, with many more twists and turns expected.
On Wednesday night, before Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat of Sunderland to earn another valuable three points, fans met the team bus with a passionate display of support, flags and banners on Anfield Road.
Midfielder Joe Allen spoke later to the Liverpool Echo about the heroes welcome the players received.
“I didn’t know they were planning it,” he said. “It was a great surprise. The support was incredible from when the team bus arrived right through to the final whistle.
“It was an amazing welcome. They were right behind us.
“Since I’ve been here, that’s probably the best support we have received.
“That support makes a massive difference. It’s one of the reasons why our home form has been so good this season.
Meanwhile former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman believes the incredible form of Luis Suarez could carry the Reds to the title this season.
Suarez is currently tied with, and just one goal away from breaking, Robbie Fowler’s club record of 28 goals scored in a Premier League season.
“He’s going to break Fowler’s record,” McManaman is quoted in the Daily Mail as saying. “He missed the first five games of the season and that suggests he will go down in Liverpool history.
“If he takes them to the league title everybody will say he is the greatest centre forward ever (at Liverpool).
“But Liverpool have been blessed with some centre forwards. You quickly forget but the fact that you are even talking about Suarez after only a couple of years at Liverpool in the same breath as Robbie or Kenny or Rushy and you can go on and on shows how much he has learned at Liverpool and improved.”
