Jamie Carragher explains why Liverpool may not win title against Everton

Liverpool may have to admit defeat in their hopes of lifting the Premier League trophy at the home of rivals Everton due to a change in the fixture list, according to Jamie Carragher.

The Reds hero was speaking ahead of Liverpool's Monday night fixture with relegation battlers West Ham at Anfield.

A win over David Moyes' side would see Liverpool extend their lead over Manchester City back to 22 points.

Carragher pointed out that in a twist of fate, Klopp's men now play three games before City are next in action.

But their meeting with Crystal Palace could now be shifted to accommodate the Kop outfit's FA Cup fifth round clash with Chelsea.

And he reckons that could have put paid to Liverpool's chances of being crowed champions at their bitter rival's home, as Arsenal did when they won the league at Tottenham's former White Hart Lane home in 2004.

"I think most Liverpool fans, most people accept that the league is almost Liverpool's. The talk now is when it will happen," he on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.

"The interesting thing is that Liverpool now play three times before City play again.

"They just need the five wins and if they do that [win those three games], you know when they will win.

"The problem being is that the Crystal Palace game on March 21 could go away because of the FA Cup against Chelsea.

"But what Liverpool need to happen, if in some Liverpool supporters' dreams it can be at Goodison Park, is for City to drop points against Manchester United and Burnley.

"You don't see that happening, especially against Burnley at home. They could lose to United. Their record against City this season is pretty good.

"It depends on that but you would image, Everton, Palace or Man City, it will be somewhere in there when it will happen."

Liverpool have won 35 of their 36 top-flight games so far and are on course to set a new record for points accumulated in a Premier League season.

City set the record with 100 points in the 2017/18 season under Pep Guardiola.
