Vote: Have Liverpool already blown their title challenge?

Spurs put in huge dent in The Red’s league campaign

Yesterday’s bout between Tottenham and Liverpool was certainly a spectacle: Rafa waved his glasses around like a mentalist, a rousing chant of “You’re supposed to be in jail” rang around White Hart Lane as Steven Gerrard took his penalty and Tottenham fans were left with an extremely familiar feeling of over-confidence concerning the season ahead.

While most of us are delighted to welcome the drama of the Premier League back into our lives, there are some pangs of discomfort on Merseyside right now. Last season, Liverpool lost out on the title by four points, having lost just two games. Thanks to Tottenham’s impressive performance, they now go into the remainder of the season on the back foot.

On Friday, Fernando Torres told us that “it is games like Sunday’s at Tottenham where we need to show our real title intentions”. Did they do exactly that? Or is there still league winning potential in the Spaniard’s side?

Let us know your thoughts below…

    they ‘re having their own words, as they did before. And no surprisingly, they will do it over and over again :-P

    No, because we lost at Spurs last year as well.

    Yes, McRib you also won nothing last year as well.

    Liverpool lose at Spurs almost every year. It wasn’t the losses that buried them last year, it was the aggregation of draws. Consider that they’ve already picked up one more point vs Stoke than last year, I’d say they’re ahead of the game. If Benitez would just shut up about what they can do…
