John Aldridge has compared Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing Liverpool side to the Manchester United teams who won the league under Alex Ferguson.

The Reds snatched a last-gasp winner against Spurs on Sunday to keep themselves firmly in the race for the Premier League trophy.

Manchester City returned to the top of the league after beating Cardiff last night, but Aldridge believes the current Liverpool squad has a quality similar to those under Ferguson’s tenure.

“There was a fear factor associated with Alex Ferguson’s title-winning Manchester United teams,” Aldridge said.

“This Liverpool team have dug out so many victories in games when they have not been at their best this season and once again, the decisive moment went in their favour as Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris spilled an easy save and another three points were put on the board.
“Manchester City… are now fully aware that this Liverpool team are not going anywhere and that pressure could be crucial as their hectic month of April heats up.”
