Daniel Sturridge believes Liverpool can win the Premier League after recording an emphatic win over arch rivals Man United in their own backyard. United’s miserable campaign under Moyes continued after the Red Devils were humbled 3-0 at Old Trafford to all but end their slim Champions League hopes, while keeping Liverpool firmly fighting for the title.
Brendan Rogers’ side are now just four points behind Chelsea, who lost to Aston Villa yeserday, and have a game in hand. Liverpool secured the three points after two Steven Gerrard penalties and a Luis Suarez strike was enough to see off a woeful United side that has left Moyes’ position under even more scrutiny – with the Scot set to be called into showdown talks with the board and Alex Ferguson over the team’s shocking form. Liverpool took the lead after 34 minutes, with Rafael handling in the area before Gerrard stepped up to send David De Gea the wrong way.
Phil Jones then upended Joe Allen in the area just after the break, with Gerrard once again netting from the spot before Suarez added further gloss to the scoreline late on. And Sturridge is now feeling confident of landing the tile. “What a win!! Get in there boys!! Striving to be second to none,” he said on Twitter.
