Meulensteen: Liverpool can win the league

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen believes Liverpool can win the Premier League title this season, Sky Sports has reported.

The Reds travel to Fulham’s Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening and after beating Arsenal 5-1 on Saturday are fourth in the table, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.


Fulham are bottom of the league with 20 points from their 25 games but after drawing with champions Manchester United on Sunday, are now four points short of safety.


“They've had an excellent season,” Meulensteen said of Liverpool. “They might be a dark horse and if other big teams stumble where you don't expect them to and they can carry the momentum into April, you never know.”


Meulensteen added that he expects a very difficult game, particularly with the partnership of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in good form.


“It's a good thing the striker in the middle is not an O as it'd be SOS. It has to be all hands on deck for us,” Meulensteen said.


The former United coach called on his players to maintain the defensive strength that frustrated United for large parts of the 2-2 draw. Meulensteen believes that such form will see Fulham maintain their top flight status.


“We have to defend in a good compact manner. The defensive performance from Sunday (2-2 draw with Manchester United) was a massive improvement,” he said.


“That's the start of a resurrection. We've got a 14-game league and this was the first game, a big tough away game. We defended really well but we need to be more positive when we have the ball.”
