Jamie Redknapp believes it is Liverpool’s Premier League title to lose after Manchester City’s defeat.

Adama Traore struck twice late on as Wolves stunned champions City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

City handed Liverpool an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Right now, eight points, it’s Liverpool’s to lose. I believe that. I think because of the circumstances at Man City, the injuries that they have got,” said Redknapp on Sky Sports.

“There certainly seems something not quite right there. Liverpool are playing so well, they have just got to keep their heads. You can imagine it’s fever pitch down there now, they have been there before with Brendan [Rodgers] and then last year believing it was going to be their year.

“You know it’s been 30 years, it’s been a long, long time for them. But I think if they keep their heads, keep Virgil van Dijk, [Mohamed] Salah fit – as long as he’s not too bad – I do believe this is Liverpool’s year.”
