|Jamie Carragher Names One Reason Why Liverpool Will Pip Man City To EPL Title by queenonyebiri1(f): 2:07pm On Feb 12|
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says the impact of Manchester City's style of play is cancelled out by one player as the English Premier League title race mind games continue.
City moved above Liverpool this week on goals difference, but have played a game more, and the shift in momentum has sparked a change of attitude on Merseyside.
After weeks of insisting Liverpool were going to win the league, Reds fans are now looking for any advantage they can re-gain over City.
And now Jamie Carragher believes that advantage is simply having Virgil van Dijk in the side.
Comparing the two sides, Carragher explained that for all City's devastating attacking play, Liverpool can win the league by virtue of the Dutchman marshaling their defence.
He said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football:
"What Man City do - blowing teams away, scoring so early, the football that they play - you could argue that is the best football to watch.
"You want to go and watch that, you’re excited by watching City more than any other team in the Premier League, I get that.
"But winning the Premier League is about who gets the most points and there’s different ways of getting points. Liverpool still play fantastic football, probably not as eye-catching and blistering and goals galore as Manchester City do.
"But Liverpool have relied a lot this season on what they’ve done defensively, the two Dutch players were outstanding at the weekend, [Georginio] Wijnaldum was back and certainly that man Van Dijk at the back what he’s done. He’s the best defender in the league. "
