Ballack writes off Liverpool's title hopes

Michael Ballack has written off Liverpool's Premier League title hopes claiming that Rafa Benitez team are more suited to the Champions League.

Liverpool are trailing Chelsea on goal difference with both teams battling it out on the top of the league. But German midfielder Ballack claimed that it's Manchester United and not Liverpool who pose the biggest threat to Chelsea's title hopes.

"It's always the big four everyone speaks about, but I still think it's about Chelsea and Manchester United," Ballack said. "Liverpool are very good but for me they are a club for the Champions League, partly because they can put their focus on one or two matches."
