Paul Scholes names the game that could have cost Liverpool Premier League title

Former Manchester United player Paul Scholes names the match that could have cost Liverpool Premier League title. According to Scholes that match could be a draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in February, should the Reds fail to leapfrog Manchester City in the final two games. "What these two teams have done has been sensational," said the former England midfielder. "Right through the season, I think. It's going to be difficult. I won't feel sorry for either of them. I won't be happy and I won't feel sorry for them. You've got to admire what they've done. When you look back on it, especially the last few games, I think Liverpool's biggest mistake was not beating United at Old Trafford. "When you see how many players United had missing. I think they had three injuries at the time. Jesse Lingard came on and pulled his hamstring. And Liverpool were really poor that day. And you saw the difference when City came to Old Trafford and were dominant, looked a really top team. I think Liverpool, ironically, could have lost it at Old Trafford." Only two rounds of fixtures remaining in Premier League and one point separating the champions and the challengers. Liverpool will face Newcastle United on Saturday, before their home game against Wolves.
