This season, Liverpool has once again become a real contender for victory in the English Premier League. The team of Jurgen Klopp is the main competitor of Manchester City; a busy second half of the season is ahead of it, and the players will have to prove their ambitions.
This summer, the Reds enhanced their lineup significantly and were able to strengthen the problem areas in the defense noticeably. Due to this, Liverpool started to miss less goals (thanks to Alisson), and the effectiveness of the attack remained at the same level. Thanks to this, the team fights on equal terms with Manchester City for winning the EPL gold medals. Of course, the lineup and teamwork of Guardiola’s team is better, but Liverpool also has a number of advantages:
- Individual skills of players. Do not forget that the Reds have the best player of the previous season, Mohammed Salah. The Egyptian still looks great, and together with Mane and Firmino they simply destroy the rivals’
- Tactical flexibility. Yes, Klopp’s lineup and formation are about the same, but we should pay attention to the results. Last year, it was the matches with middle level teams and outsiders that was the main problem of Liverpool and did not allow the team to really fight for the title, but now there isn’t such problem.
- It is not necessary to remind again that the last time the Reds were the first was in 1990, and for them the victory is something incredible. And right now, Liverpool has the best potential for winning the title.
The team looks balanced and shows its maximum, not only against the rivals of the same level, but also against less cool teams. You can always follow the Liverpool score on the site of sports statistics. Here, the results of the team are given special attention. Thanks to the livescore you will know all the latest news from the team.
Reds’ Prospects in Second Half of Season
Much will depend on the club’s results in the international arena. It is not clear what is more important for Klopp, the English Premier League or the Champions League. Most likely, if the team still has chances in the championship, it is the internal championship that will become the priority.
However, the advantage of the current Liverpool is an excellent opportunity for rotation. The coach can change several players at once and it will not be fatal for the team. Klopp is already conducting such experiments during the season. Closer to its end, the leaders will need more rest. In the long run, this can play a decisive role and become the main asset of the Reds in the fight for trophies in the domestic and international arenas.
