It was earlier feared that English Premier League outfit Liverpool cannot handle the pressure of being league leaders but that has been dismissed by former club striker John Aldridge.
Suggestions are that the reason why Liverpool failed to record a win against Leicester City and West Ham United with both games ending in a draw was that they were overwhelmed.
Had the Red won two of the games, they would have comfortably had a 7 points lead in the Premier League table ahead of Man City which would have been a major boost to their title bid.
In his claim, John Aldridge stated that his former side can cope with the pressure because the club have seen more of it in the past and were able to see past it.
He noted that the club have got a history which is expected to influence the current team, stressing that his former can still win the league this season.
John Aldridge noted that all that is needed by his former side is to keep winning games and not bother about the distractions from other clubs.
However, John Aldridge said the standard of the league has been increased by Liverpool and Man City in the last years.
