Steve McManaman has spoken of his confidence in Rafa Benitez’s side chances in the race for the title against Manchester United and Chelsea.

The former Red told Setanta Sports: “Put it this way – I will be over the moon if Stevie and Carra have got their hands on that trophy in May and I honestly believe they have an outstanding chance of doing it.”

“People go on about them being ready to collapse but I just don’t see it. Over the last three months, they have looked incredibly strong and have played the best football out of the top three. All Chelsea seem to be doing is be chugging along.”

“Prior to last weekend, Manchester United had been poor in a number of games and hadn’t been scoring too many goals. Can you say the same about Liverpool? No. Never mind what happened against Stoke.”

“They’ve got the best player in the country in Gerrard and the best centre-forward in the country in Fernando Torres. He has been missing and if he comes back firing on all cylinders, what’s stopping them?”

“Pressure? That’s nonsense. There’s no pressure for Stevie – he’s played in two European Cup finals. Is there any pressure for the Spanish lads who played in the Euro 2008 final? The games they have got coming up are like getting out of bed in the morning.”
