Darren Fletcher explains what he really thinks of Liverpool title chances
By Harvey Byrne
West Brom midfielder Darren Fletcher has warned Liverpool that there’s still a long way to go in the Premier League title race.
The Reds beat Fletcher’s Baggies 2-1 on Saturday evening, which ensured they moved joint top of the league with Arsenal and Manchester City.
However, Fletcher, who has won the Premier League four times with Manchester United has spoke from experience and has stated that leagues aren’t won in October and November.
“I think they’ll be one of the teams….. they’re doing alright,” said Fletcher, as quoted by the Express.
“Whether they can go an win the league remains to be seen. Obviously they’ve started the season well but there’s a long way to go.

“Leagues aren’t won in October and November, they’re won March to May. There’s a long, long way to go.”
Fletcher, 32, spent 20 years at Liverpool’s fierce rivals Manchester United and will have mentioned the Reds alongside a Premier League title through gritted teeth.
The experienced midfielder played the full 90 minutes on Saturday, but was unable to stop his side from falling to a defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s in form team.
The Reds will now host Tottenham on Wednesday in the EFL Cup before travelling to London, where they will face Crystal Palace and former striker Christian Benteke in their next Premier League venture.
