This is surprising given that Liverpool is 13 points behind Manchester City and 14 points behind Arsenal.

They are currently ranked tenth on the league log and will face Manchester City on Sunday. Pep said this about Liverpool ahead of the game:
“Liverpool have always have been [Man City’s biggest challengers]. I know the quality they have. If it was like this with 10 games left, I would say I don’t think they can catch, but now anything can happen.”
“It’s always difficult in the years since we have arrived here together, it will be a tough game and I don’t expect anything else.”
“The game will be dictated on the pitch, not by the table, because we are in front of them or behind, not because of those kind of things. I know now the quality they have, they know the quality we have.”
“If this was with three games left, I would say they could not catch top of the league but with so long left plus a World Cup, anything can happen.”
