Liverpool take big step towards EPL title

7:29 am on 14 April 2014

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praised an "incredible" performance as his side took a huge stride towards the Premier League title with a 3-2 home win over Manchester City.

Liverpool's 10th straight league victory takes them to 77 points, two points ahead of Chelsea - who beat Swansea 1-nil this morning - and crucially seven points ahead of City who have two games in hand on the Merseyside team.

Liverpool have four games to play and if they win them all will claim their first top-flight title in 24 years.

This weekend is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy in which 96 Liverpool fans died at an FA Cup game against Nottingham Forest.
