Former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey has been quoted by Sky Sports as saying that the Reds now have the upper-hand in the title race.

We’ve not had a proper battle for the Premier League trophy for a few years now but that looks set to change this campaign.

The Reds have stepped up to the plate to take on Manchester City and currently lead the way by two points.

They have played a game more, though, after beating Fulham at the weekend whilst City were in FA Cup action.

Despite that, though, Heskey feels as though because they have the points on the board, they have the advantage, not City.

He said:

“Psychologically it’s very important.

“As you saw before, they were always having to chase Manchester City, they were always trying to stay ahead. Now they’ve got the upper hand.

“It’s better to have the points in hand rather than having to go out there and fight for it.”

Certainly, you probably would rather have the points rather than the game in hand but City know that if they win all their games this season they are champions.

With just a few fixtures left, too, it certainly seems possible.
