How Liverpool have improved under Brendan Rodgers - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Liverpool's 3-0 victory at Old Trafford against arch rivals Manchester United have put them back firmly on the Premier League title race, even though the Reds manager continues to play down his team's chances.
I don't really understand how UEFA does their business in terms of Team rankings in regards to Champions League standings and seedings for each Season but I would hazard a guess now that it will not favour Liverpool if they qualify for next year's Tournament. I did believe that Liverpool would be ranked as 2nd seeds in the group stages because of their previous success in winning the Trophy five times also their excellent results in years when they finished in a losing Final in 2007 when Dirk Kuyt's goal was not enough to prevent Milan from winning the Cup.
Liverpool walked away from Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon having collected all three points scoring two penalties and one goal via Luis Suarez from open play. The Reds were awarded three spot kicks but it could have been five or six in a game that saw some controversial decisions mixed with a truly poor performance from the once exuberant Manchester United.
Sitting just four points behind English Premier League leading side Chelsea after 29 matches, Liverpool are starting to believe that they can contend for the EPL title this season.

That taste quickly became nauseating once I realised just how close Liverpool are to win a first league title since 1990, barely 12 months after Fergie steered us to number 20 last season, before calling it a day and were they to win the league, it would be utterly devastating for a number of reasons: nobody saw it coming and media love-in with the scousers is already in full swing, even though they haven't won it yet.
England Two more penalties for Steven Gerrard penalties helped Liverpool beat West Ham 2-1 and lifted them back in front of Chelsea, who bounced back from two straight defeats to beat Stoke City 3-0, with Manchester City four points off the top, but with two games in hand, after beating Southampton 4-1.
