Liverpool’s draw raises no eyebrows

The silence that greeted Liverpool’s draw away to Wolves last night was telling and the surest indicator yet that internally Liverpool recognise that there is no longer a Big Four but a Big Three, and they were merely guests at the table for a couple of years.

At least Gerrard and Benitez see the positives – Gerrard was adamant that this was a point gained and not two points dropped, and that going five games unbeaten was a sign that things had turned a corner at Anfield.

Of course, not conceding a goal to a team that has only scored 9 in 12 games (joint lowest with Birmingham) at home this season is a plus. Not scoring against a defence that has conceded 17 during the same period (only Bolton and West Ham have conceded more) is a corner turned.

Liverpool are now equal on points with Manchester City but have played two games more. They are three points behind Tottenham and 2 points ahead of Villa (who have also played two games less). I know you can read the league table, but with 15 games left for Liverpool they’ll need to do more than ‘gain a point’ away to Wolves to qualify for the Champions League next season.
