With Liverpool regaining form and having steadily moved up to 6th in the table the question now becomes how realistic is 4th place and that coveted Champions League spot. It's a question that would have seemed ridiculous to ask before Kenny Dalglish took the helm.
So who are the teams we are competing with? Right now it's the two London clubs, Chelsea (45 points, 26 games) and Spurs (47 points, 27 games).

The big debate about the Chelsea game on Sunday is should Liverpool try and win the game and as a result potentially hand Man United the league or roll-over, let Chelsea win and try and stop United from winning a record-breaking 19th title. It's a no-win scenario as the idea of hearing Ferguson crowing about how he has knocked Liverpool off their perch makes me physically ill.
