EPL coach claims Reds will slip up

The Reds are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table at Christmas, and the omens to end their long-running title pursuit seem promising.

Liverpool occupy the summit of the Premier League at Christmas, four points ahead of second-place Manchester City following a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday.

History dictates teams sitting on the pile at Christmas go on and win the title, but Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson believes the Reds will slip up at some stage.

“I don’t think Pep Guardiola will be too concerned about a four-point gap with 20 games left to play,” Hodgson said according to FourFourTwo.

Palace pulled off the shock of the season so far by getting the better of City after coming from a goal down to walk out 3-2 victors.

Hodgson, who managed Liverpool for just six months in the 2010/11 season, is confident there will be a slip up from the Merseyside with the race to the finish line far from concluded.

With the top-two still having to face off, Hodgson believes there will be more surprises propping up in the title race later on in the campaign.

“One of those is going to be against Liverpool, but even without that game the chances are that Liverpool will go somewhere and something like this will happen.
