Liverpool: ‘Premier League title race is starting to take shape’

Ian Kennedy, BBC Radio Merseyside

Liverpool’s victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby not only secured local bragging rights but also revitalized their league campaign after setbacks against Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton. The international break had given them time to reflect, making the three points crucial in the title race.

Although it’s only October, a title race is taking shape and Liverpool is right in the mix, just three points off the top. Jurgen Klopp’s men have also started their Europa League campaign perfectly, boosting confidence for their upcoming match against Toulouse. However, their focus will soon shift to the visit of Nottingham Forest on Sunday. While Liverpool is expected to win with home advantage, Forest posed a challenge last season, defeating them at the City Ground and scoring twice at Anfield. The unpredictability of this league means no game is guaranteed.

Klopp was satisfied with the clean sheet against Everton, only the second in the league this season. However, he recognizes the world-class firepower his team possesses up front. Their ability to swiftly transition from defense to attack, as demonstrated by the second goal against Everton, is remarkable. In Mo Salah, who has either scored or assisted in his last 13 Premier League matches at Anfield, Liverpool has a player who seems determined to break records with every game.
