Sherwood identifies position Liverpool need to strengthen to win title

Parlour won the Premier League titles in Arsenal sides featuring David Seaman and Jens Lehman, and the former Gunners midfielder stressed the importance of having someone reliable in between the sticks.

The 44-year-old believes that Liverpool will clinch the third spot and has backed Tottenham to end up fourth.

The prize of staying in the Premier League and the bonuses managers get when they achieve that relatively modest "success" is now damaging the game as most teams are simply trying not to lose rather than a win.

United's decline wasn't bad and they've remained second for most of the current campaign with the Englishman having played a large number of those games. "But I think that's our (goal) first and foremost".

"From a point of view of second, I would say just United".

"The fact we get to play Liverpool at home as well I think is a big advantage".

Earlier this month Sky Sports asked its pundits - Paul Merson, Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier and Phil Thompson - which of the big teams would finish outside the top four.

However, Chelsea No. 1 Thibaut Courtois insists they have the quality to rise up from fifth to grab a Champions League spot.

"It is going to be a monumental run-in, but Chelsea now have to go on a run, hopefully starting with something, even a point against Man City at the weekend", Nevin told Chelsea's official website.

With 72 points on the board, City only need to win five of their last eleven games to claim a third Premier League crown.

According to Eir Sport, Chris said: "I think obviously we've been second for quite a while and that needs to be our bare minimum".

Prior to facing United at Old Trafford, Liverpool must get through a home game against Newcastle, which will see Rafa Benitez return to Anfield as an opposing manager, and the home return leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie against Porto.

With City boasting a 13-point lead and another game in hand against Arsenal to come, one of the few competitive betting heats involving the elite clubs could be who will take second place.
