Liverpool remain in a strong position to win their first ever Premier League title.
The Reds have slipped to second in the table on goal difference after Manchester City beat Arsenal and Everton in their last two games.
Jurgen Klopp’s men do have a game in hand on their rivals though, and take on Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday, with City hosting Chelsea on the Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur have also clawed their way back into the title race with some positive results of late, and are just five points behind the top two. The Lilywhites play against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has been speaking to talkSPORT’s Jim White about his old club’s chances of winning the title.
He believes they can do it, and revealed one man he expects to come up trumps in the run-in.
Mane to come of age?
Johnson, who recently announced his retirement from the game, reckons Sadio Mane can tip the balance in Liverpool’s favour, rather than Roberto Firmino or Mo Salah.
He said: “van Dijk will obviously be a massive player for them, but I personally think Mane.
“If he’s on top of his game, he’s such an explosive player he can pop in a goal from nowhere.
“As long as they are on the top of their game, Liverpool will be right in there.”
Mane has started to come into some good form against after a bit if a mid-season slump.
The Senegal flyer has hit three goals in his last three league games, taking his tally to 11 for the season.
There’s great pressure on last season’s talisman Salah to deliver at a crucial stage of the season, but Mane, often in the Egyptian’s shadow, could well be an unsung hero for the title-chasing Reds.
