Liverpool’s chances of finally winning the Premier League after 30 years are as high as Prime Minister Boris Johnson getting Brexit done, which is “no more than probably”, according to Karren Brady. The undefeated Reds are proving to be the absolute favourites of finishing first this season but the title race is in no way over as there are still a number of factors Jurgen Klopp and his players should take into account.

Brady claims it is still too early to predict the absolute favourite as the Merseysiders’ 11-point lead over their strongest rivals Manchester City, who are in third place behind Leicester, “could melt as fast as ice on the lake”.

Liverpool are no strangers to title heartbreaks as Brendan Rodgers’ side gave away a substantial lead to City in the final stages of the 2013-2014 season and failed to end their Premier League hoodoo.

And even then the Reds’ attack, led by Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, was more clinical than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino this term.

Kevin Keegan’s Newcastle also enjoyed a 12-point lead over Manchester United in the 1995-1996 campaign only to finish second on the last day of the season.

Brady added that Klopp can’t afford any notable injuries as most vacated positions have been filled in by James Milner and that shows there isn’t much depth on the bench.

If a player like Virgil van Dijk gets injured then the Premier League leaders will lack important solutions and may suffer the same defensive problems as City who are without a standout centre-back following Vincent Company’s departure and Aymeric Laporte’s injury.

Baroness Brady claims all of the aforementioned issues make Liverpool’s title chances as likely as Johnson getting Brexit over the line.

The PM has failed to keep his “do or die” pledge of completing Britain’s departure from the EU on October 31 even though he claimed he would “rather be dead in a ditch” than ask for an extension.

Johnson is still facing an uphill battle in his bid of getting Brexit done by January 31 as much will be decided by the upcoming general election result.

Brady wrote in her column at The Sun: “Liverpool’s chances of a first league title in 30 years are about the same as Boris Johnson getting Brexit done or Lionel Messi winning the 2020 Ballon d’Or.

“Which means no more than probably.

“To begin with, we aren’t even at Christmas yet. And with the season barely a third of the way through, those 11 points could melt as fast as ice on the lake.

“Without the Dutchman [Van Dijk] for a couple of months, a dreaded occurrence for manager Klopp, Liverpool would surely be in the same difficulties being felt by City at centre-back.

“Liverpool themselves learned then about failing to capitalise on gaping leads.

“Make no mistake about it, Pep’s City will chase their arch-rivals to the tape — and possibly Leicester will, too.

“A bigger test than either, though, will be how to overcome the pressure of the 30-year void.”

Real enter talks with Aubameyang as they look to swap £60m man

Real Madrid have entered talks with representatives of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to journalist Duncan Castles.

There have rumours that Aubameyang will look to make a move away from the Gunners in the summer with the club on the verge of a ‘full blown crisis’.

And Castles has the latest from his sources with Los Blancos reportedly looking to use their summer signing Luka Jovic as a bargaining chip.

“There’s some information I have that Real Madrid have been looking at whether they can get Aubameyang out of Arsenal and have entered into discussions with his representatives to that effect,” Castles told Transfer Window podcast.

“We know that Aubameyang has been stalling on extending his contact at Arsenal. We know he is one of the best paid players at the club.

“And obviously at present you could argue he is at a club that doesn’t fit his performance levels on the field in terms of his ability to put goals away.

“The interesting bit of information I have on this is that Real Madrid I believe are trying to float Luka Jovic into the deal.

“Their £60m signing from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer who I think has scored just one goal in 11 appearances since arriving there.

“That would be a proposal that would allow Jovic an opportunity at a different club, a restart to his career, it would bring Arsenal’s wage bill down and solve the problem that Arsenal might have of a disgruntled forward and a player that has been very prominent in their team.

“But if you have that player in a difficult contractual situation the proposal that Madrid are putting to them then let’s solve two problems here for both of us and readjust our squads.

“Whether Arsenal will bite on that I think will be dependent on not just Aubameyang’s stance but who they bring in as manager.”

Berbatov warns Man Utd over potential deal for Haaland

Berbatov warns Man Utd over potential deal for Haaland

Dimitar Berbatov questions whether Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland would fit into Manchester United’s style of play amid speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

Haaland is one of the most in-demand strikers in Europe thanks to his blistering start to the season with RB Salzburg, with a number of top clubs lining up for his signature.

United are among the main names to be linked, with the 19-year-old having been coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the past at Molde.

However, Berbatov – who scored 56 goals in 149 appearances for United across a four-year spell – thinks the Red Devils’ attack has been functioning well enough for the club not to consider bringing in a new striker in January.

“Manchester United outplayed Tottenham at Old Trafford by moving the ball quickly, being aggressive and generally playing with the kind of purpose that United fans expect to see,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“The movement of Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood and especially Marcus Rashford was excellent and the team’s performance was a big step in the right direction.

“Rashford scored his first goal from a difficult angle and, even though Paulo Gazzaniga should have saved his shot, it gave the United striker the belief that this was his night.

“That’s why he was shooting from long-range and playing with great confidence. He confused Tottenham’s defenders with his skills, they were rattled by his pace and power, which is why Moussa Sissoko conceded the penalty in the second half.

“If United’s attacking players can perform as well as they did against Tottenham, and Anthony Martial plays to his potential when he returns from injury, then there’s no need for Ole to sign a striker in January. Bringing in a new forward at this point could even discourage the players that United already have.

“I know there’s speculation about Erling Braut Haaland coming to Old Trafford. He’s a big centre-forward, an old fashioned target man who scores tap-ins, so he would offer United something different, but they need to think carefully about how he would fit into their style of play.”
