We're past that stage now aren't we? That fear? That suspension of belief? We only sang "We're gonna win the league" with gusto after we beat United at Anfield back in January. Was it really only six months ago? It seems like an age seems like 30 years. Liverpool are going to win the league and soon. I'm writing this just hours before the resumption of the English Premier League. Manchester City play Arsenal tonight in a vacuum; Liverpool poised …
Liverpool need six more points to secure Premier League title

Liverpool need six more points to secure Premier League title

Liverpool's 30-year wait for the Premier League title was forcefully postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak that saw all sporting activities suspended - however, it is now only a matter of when and not if the Merseyside club will clinch the coveted title. Until the suspension of the League, Liverpool had the best start to a season by any European club but their barnstorming spell was scuppered by the ravaging pandemic. The Reds are now back in full training and they …
A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

To lay everything out on the table from the start, here, any talk of Liverpool having won the Premier League title already this season is absolutely absurd. You can certainly lose the title in the first eight games. But with only 21% of the season completed, there’s no chance you can win it in that time. Last season, the Reds led Manchester City by seven points at the turn of the year, lost just one game all season, accumulated the …

Spurs spurred it! Liverpool fortunate winners at Anfield.

Spurs spurred it! Liverpool fortunate winners at Anfield.

Were you worried? Ye of little faith. Jurgen Klopp left his summer midfield acquisitions on the bench, leading to plenty of pre-match consternation. James Milner started in midfield along with Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum, leaving all of us to wonder what on earth was wrong with Naby Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri. Going off of the assumption that Jurgen Klopp isn’t trying to throw the league away like we did the domestic cups, one would have to guess that the …
Are Liverpool's title hopes in real danger now?

Are Liverpool's title hopes in real danger now?

The weight of expectations is one strong burden to bear and who knows it better than the second most successful English side that hasn’t really had a good taste of success from the past two decades. Their 5-0 victory against Watford is sandwiched between two goalless derbies as they lost two important points to their bitter neighbours this last Sunday. 2019 has been a strange year for the Reds. They were 7 points clear off the defending champions at the …
The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

How good does the league table look? Liverpool are perched at the top of the tree, after a fantastic start to the season. Few will begrudge them their place ahead of a terrific Man City team who are showing small signs of last season's exertions catching up. A record breaking 100 points and the need for excruciating, constant attention to detail. Is it sustainable for another gruelling Premier League campaign? 90-95 points is probably where Liverpool need to be to …
