BLOWING rivals away with blistering pace, the character to recover from a setback, a strong desire to win. Liverpool showed all the qualities associated with potential champions on a defining afternoon.

The Reds, on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, channelled the emotion of a poignant occasion to claim the most vital of their 24 victories this season.

Anfield was the place to be on a super Sunday that may just have shaped the destiny of one of the most relentless challenges for glory in the history of mankind.

In championship winning terms, potential took on proven in a pivotal decider which translated the hope of Kopites into expectation and left City wondering if a second title in three years remains plausible.

In theatre terms, the must-see show of the season did not disappoint one bit. It was the Barclays Premier League at its finest.

Brendan Rodgers did not just unleash the hotbed of the passionate Anfield crowd on the Blues but let loose the thriving attacking weapons that have devastated so many teams this term in a familiar whirlwind assault in the opening half an hour.

Now for the first time, the favourites tag has changed hands – they can dare to dream. The title is in the grasp. No game will be easy in the run-in. Handling the overriding pressure and erasing any thoughts of complacency will be the most difficult aspects.
