Kolo Toure has said his former side Arsenal are not favourites to win the league (technically they’re not), and that his current side has the chance to go all the way.
‘Both Arsenal and Liverpool definitely have what it takes to win the title. Two great teams, with great spirit.
‘Both teams work hard and fight and, even though Liverpool were in a difficult situation, we kept fighting and I think that’s really good. Both teams are strong mentally.’
The free transfer from Manchester City has been a regular for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season and appears to be back to his best form. Having already becoming quite a fan favourite and cult hero at Anfield, this message of support for his side is sure to hold him in good stead with the fans.
Liverpool find themselves in third place on goal difference to Chelsea in second, while Arsenal have finally opened up a margin at the top of the league thanks to their 2-0 victory on Saturday evening.
