Roy Evans claims that Brendan Rodgers can still lead guide Liverpool to the league title like Bill Shankly
Manchester City are now in the driving seat for the title after Liverpool lost to Chelsea
Thursday 01 May 2014
Former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson says that the Premier League title race is far from over and claims that the current incumbent in the Reds' hotseat, Brendan Rodgers, can lead the team to glory like their great manager Bill Shankly.
Liverpool slipped up in the Premier League after their 2-0 defeat by Chelsea last weekend, meaning that City can now win the title if they maintain their superior goal difference and the clubs end the season with the same amount of points. They can both reach a maximum of 86 points.
The Reds have two matches remaining, starting with Crystal Palace on Monday night, up next for City is a trip to Liverpool's rivals Everton.
"Shanks would be saying now exactly the same as Brendan is. He’d be saying: 'Let's win our two games and put City under pressure.'
"Of course, some Everton fans will not want us [Liverpool] to win, as we probably wouldn’t want them in same situation.
"Maybe Everton can do a favour for themselves, and for us, as they still have a chance of the Champions League.
"[Roberto] Martinez will make sure they are up for it. We’ve got to be positive; it’s never over, until it’s over."
Evans was in charge at Anfield between 1994 and 1998, and won the League Cup with the club in 1995.
