Liverpool FC: It's Still Too Early for Title Talk!

Karen PatelCorrespondent ISeptember 29, 2008

Liverpool recorded yet another victory over Merseyside rivals Everton at the weekend, and the title talk is growing from both Liverpool fans and some pundits.

I would like to take a reality check, here.

Yes, our team has had an excellent start to the season, our best ever I think, but it is only September, and to hear some people talk you would think The Reds had it in the bag already.

We still have to play Chelsea, whom I am terrified of at the moment. They can destroy teams in a second on their day, and I just hope that when we go to Stamford Bridge on Oct. 26 we can match them.

Our performances are now improving, and Torres and Keane are beginning to form a potent partnership. Despite that, I can't help but be cautious.

Arsenal losing at the weekend leaves us and Chelsea a couple of points clear, but one slip from either team and The Gunners will be breathing down our necks once again. That surprise result for them against Hull also proves that every fixture cannot be taken for granted, and how it is more difficult than ever to land that elusive Premier League title.

Aston Villa are the surprise package for me so far. Martin O'Neil has built a very strong and skillful side full of pace and imagination, and, given their start to the season, our 0-0 draw at Villa Park earlier on seems like a good result.

I am enjoying our great start, and long may it continue; but, my fellow Reds, please leave it until at least January to start getting too excited!
