Expecting Liverpool to win every game would be foolish-James

David James is backing Liverpool to land the Premier League title, but admits it would be “foolish” to expect them to maintain a winning run for much longer.

The Reds have taken maximum points from their last 17 outings in the English top-flight.

Victory at Manchester United after the international break would see them match the record set by Manchester City in 2017.

Success at Old Trafford would also see them cement a standing which currently has them eight points clear at the top of the table.

Former Reds goalkeeper James believes they can bring a 30-year wait for title glory to a close, but feels expectations need to be reined in slightly.

He told The Mirror: "I want Liverpool to win it.

"Yes there’s a gap at the moment, but to think Liverpool will win every game this season would be foolish, because it’s never been done before.

"You’d imagine Liverpool are going to drop some points, and Man City will keep gaining points.

"I think Liverpool will do it, I would like Liverpool to do it because Jurgen Klopp deserves it and the club deserves it."

He believes Reds boss Klopp is now well placed to finally get one over on Pep Guardiola as he has everybody pulling in the same direction at Anfield.
