Liverpool: Worthy Champions

With the Premier League season in doubt, Liverpool will have to wait and see if they are to be crowned Champions, if the league is going to be completed or will it be cancelled? 

Liverpool have been unbelievable to watch all season long, winning 27 out of their 29 matches. They have drawn just once, against Manchester United at Old Trafford, and have lost just once to Watford in a shock 3-0 defeat. 

Despite that defeat, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been pretty much perfect all season and no one, including Manchester City, have come close to them. Football betting indicates the title race has been over for some time, and that it is near impossible for Liverpool to mess it up now, with only a handful of wins required. 

Pep Guardiola’s side currently sit a massive 25 points behind Liverpool and, even with a game in hand, it is clear to see the title race was done months ago. 

The Premier League leaders were unable to defend their Champions League title, however, losing to Atletico Madrid in extra time in the round of 16. It was a disappointing night for Klopp’s Reds and an almighty mistake from second-choice goalkeeper, Adrian, was the killer blow. It also ended an incredible record, as the defeat to Atletico saw Liverpool lose their first European home game in six years. 

But with so much focus on the Premier League, and playing at the high intensity they have all season, Liverpool fans won’t be too bothered as they look to secure their first-ever Premier League trophy after so many near misses over the years. One match which stands out from a superb season was Liverpool’s home victory over Manchester City back in December. Manchester City had to win in order to close the gap, but an early strike from Fabinho was an indicator of how the evening was going to go for Pep’s side. 

Mo Salah doubled Liverpool’s lead within 13 minutes, and Sadio Mane made it three, just six minutes after the restart. Bernardo Silva scored nothing short of a consolation goal with less than ten minutes to go, but Liverpool held on to run out as 3-1 winners. It was pretty clear from this game that no-one would be capable of catching Liverpool. 

Klopp’s side are not only running away with the Premier League this season, but they are also on track to break a few records, including the most amount of wins and the most amount of points accumulated in a single campaign. 

However, this isn’t the end goal for Liverpool and their fans, who will only take these achievements as a bonus. They are desperate to win the title and it will mean so much to all involved with the football club. 

Liverpool are currently waiting to see when the season will continue but, even if it doesn’t, it is hard to disagree that they are not worthy winners of their first-ever Premier League trophy.
