Liverpool Boss Says Villa Are In Title Race
Liverpool boss and long term Gareth Barry fan (!) Rafa Benitez says that Villa are the real deal and are in the scrap for the league.
The Reds boss says you can't write off Villa so the league isn't a two horse race between Liverpool and Manchester United yet.
Must admit I think it is already a one horse race, once Man Utd get their noses ahead, they seldom mess up, but hey, we can but hope!
'Aston Villa are in a good position. I think it’s too soon to say it’s a two-horse race. We have to keep going and then maybe at the end it could be down to two teams.'
He added, 'I’m not surprised Villa are doing well because they have good players. They are working really hard and are in a good position, and that makes motivation for each game easier.'
Villa currently lie in 3rd place just 3 points behind Liverpool with a trip to Anfield to look forward to next month. Man Utd are top with a 56 points and a game in hand. Will they crack?!?
