With six games remaining Liverpool are in pole position to claim their first league title for 24 years - and their first in the Premier League era.

Eight straight victories have catapulted Brendan Rodgers' side to the summit, although Manchester City are rightly still regarded as favourites to lift the trophy given their games in hand and vast playing resources.

But neither Manuel Pellegrini or Jose Mourinho will be relishing their upcoming trips to Anfield, and if the Reds can avoid any slip-ups at the likes of West Ham and Crystal Palace they will fancy their chances of pulling off the impossible.

Seventh last year, Liverpool have regained their place among tbe elite with a magnificent brand of attacking football and a largely youthful squad.

And Steven Gerrard - one of England's all-time greats - is seeking the one trophy missing from his extraordinary career.

Everton and Manchester United fans will obviously disagree, but it is easy to see why Rodgers' men are already the people's champions.

Do you agree?
