Have giddy Liverpool peaked too soon?

United fans will no doubt be looking forward to going to work this Monday morning after an excellent weekend of results for the Champions. The Premier League has a more familiar look about it, with United up to third following defeats for Liverpool and Arsenal. Then of course Lewis Hamilton became the youngest F1 World Champion on Sunday, while at the same time over at the Reebok, Richard Dunne, added to his ever-growing, hilarious collection of own-goals with another lovely finish to ensure cITY lost again on their travels, sweet.

The Merseyside Reds were unlucky at Spurs, but I for one am wondering if they really do have what it takes to stay the course over the season. There's no doubt that Benitez appears to have found the system that best suits his squad of players, but for some reason I have this nagging doubt about their ability to fend-off the challenges of both United and Chelsea.

I am fairly certain this Liverpool team will fight all the way to the finish-line, but just like the Ferrari team in the Interlargos pit-lane on Sunday, will it turn out to be a case of getting giddy too soon?

I must admit, I don't see United winning the title at this juncture, mainly because Fergie hasn't been able to find the right system, too many players seem to be out-of-sorts, I refer to the make-up of our forward line. Does anyone, including the manager, really know what Fergie's strongest line-up is right now?

On the flip side, if United can keep winning and assuming we take three points from our game in hand, the Red Devils' will be within touching distance of the front-runners and if and when we really find our best form the Champions could end up retaining the title.
