He really does.
The Liverpool boss has today claimed that his side are not out of the title race, despite losing their fifth Premier League game this season at Craven C0ttage on Saturday.
Benitez has insisted that the 3-1 defeat against Fulham is not the end of Liverpool’s title challenge this season and that his side can still challenge the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.
When asked about Liverpool’s chances of winning the title this season, Benitez failed to rule out the possibilty of it happening. The Spaniard had this to say : “In football you have to keep calm and try to find solutions. We have to think about what we have to do now. We have too many injuries and I have to analyse how many players I have available.”
I did say it last week that although their victory over Manchester United was a great result, Liverpool would struggle to mount any kind of title challenge and it looks like I’m right.
