Vote: Will Rafael Benitez win Liverpool the title by 2014?
The Spaniard ends doubt about his future by signing five-year deal
Last season Liverpool fans were able to seize hope from their side’s fourth-placed finish by stating that if they had won both of their matches with Manchester United, they would have finished level on points with them.
This year however they have done the double over Manchester United and Chelsea but still find themselves trailing because of failure to to turn draws into wins against clubs outside the Big Four.
The Spoiler finds Liverpool far more entertaining and effective when forced into a position where they have to go on the offensive – whether that has been to come from behind against Middlesbrough, Man City, Wigan and Portsmouth or having to attack in must-win games like at Old Trafford last week.
Emphatic wins in their last two games suggest that Benitez may have decided he has been too cautious too often this year but is that the case or is he only taking more risks now because there is no alternative?
Let us know whether you think Rafa will end Liverpool’s long wait for a 19th league title with a vote and comment below:
