Tim Holland speaks to Anfield regular Andy Parker

How do you assess Liverpool’s season so far?

How do you assess Liverpool’s season so far?

I think even the most optimistic scouser, and we are an optimistic bunch, wouldn’t have predicted being in the top two let alone top of the league with a few games to play. It’s surprised a lot of people.

Do you think you’ll be able to win the league?

I think we’re in with a good shout. It’s Man City’s to lose now but with Chelsea faltering and our great form I think we might you know.

How do you rate Liverpool’s signings this season?

Our signings have been very good and with an eye for the future as well. It’s been the emergence of Flanagan and rejuvenation of Sterling and consistency of Gerrard that have done it for me though.

Suarez looked to be on his way out of Anfield in the summer but has arguably been your best player this season. Do you think you’ll keep hold of him in the summer?

We’re guaranteed Champions League football next season so I can’t see why not. Why would he want to leave the Premier League winners as well?

What have you made of your North West neighbours Manchester United’s demise this season?

I genuinely enjoyed their capitulation this season. I think they’ll have a reverse second season syndrome and do well next season though .

Andy Carroll plays against Liverpool for the first time this season having been injured previously. What’s you take on big AC?

I must admit I miss that ponytail gracing Anfield. I think he didn’t fit the mould here but he’s exactly the type of player you need.

Stewart Downing also moved to East London in the summer. Have you missed him this season?

n a word, no. He had his troubles at Liverpool but I think he’s a decent player but not right for us I’m afraid.

Who should West Ham fans be wary of in the Liverpool first XI when the club’s meet this season?

Strurridge and Suarez are lethal at the moment. Sterling and Gerrard have also been in the goals this season as well.

Which West Ham players would you have in your squad?

Tomkins and Reid. Perhaps Adrian as back up.

What’s been your opinion of West Ham this season?

Big Andy coming back has been a blessing for you because you looked like real relegation contenders at one stage.

. What’s your prediction for the match and for both clubs this season?

I think we will win 2-0 and we will be champions and you’ll finish 15th.
