Are Liverpool about to chuck it away?

Recommended Posts

Liverpool blew another chance tonight, and are now only 3 points ahead, with Man City playing on Wednesday.

City could be back on top of the league before Liverpool kick a ball again.

Can anyone hear breaking glass yet???

Every team goes through a dodgy patch.  City went through a wobble during December.  They lost games whereas Liverpool are still picking up points.  It maybe that points against West Ham and Leicester make the difference in the end?

Both teams will drop points.  I think progress in the CL will play its part in terms of fixture congestion, I also wonder where and when both teams need to play the other top five clubs.  Home advantage and the like might make all the difference.

I think Liverpool were in a bit of a false position when they were 8 clear, tbh. From what I've seen of them this year they aren't as good as they were last year.

Better defensively (on the whole) but weaker in attack and less able to sweep opponents aside or break down stubborn defences (that Leicester game being a good example - Liverpool just couldn't get through those solid blue lines at all)

They've had a bad couple of weeks, but I do think they'll bounce back. Plus, having played City twice and taken only 1 point, to be 3 ahead is still pretty good. They can't afford many more slips though.

I could see Spurs coming back into it a bit too, although I don't think they'll win the league.

I got that.  I simply think that CL commitments could prove a distraction.  I actually think that if City make the CL semis, the CL might take on greater importance than the league

Can it be decided on goal difference?

Man City on +54 after today.  Liverpool on +44, albeit with a game in hand.

Two consecutive hat-tricks for Aguero, meaning he equals Shearers PL record of 11.

Get it right round them. Such a disgusting football club.

Still all to play for, both teams can still drop plenty of points.  City still to play United who are still chasing a CL spot themselves. 

Looking at the run ins both teams have, it really could go either way.

As I said last season Mo Salah only has 1 foot. He has been played on the right so any defenders will be able to catch him out all the time. 

He should have scored but moved the ball onto his left then keeper saved. 

If it was true I would have delivered him to Real Madrid for £100 million! 

Hes been found out now.

I mean, he's still the second top scorer on 17, only one behind Aguero. Not exactly a flop, though he's definitely dropped in form again after a poor start to the season and then a very successful spell for a while.

As I said a month ago, Liverpool are generally weaker in attack this season, which I would attribute to the move away from quite as intense a pressing game as last season. That said, last season they were running out of energy with 15 minutes to go, so you can see what Klopp was trying to do.

Hoping that the return of Alex Oxlade Chamberlain might spark the attack again, but it's looking like City's to lose now.

Salah hasn't been the same since Ramos done him in the Champions League final. I watch that tackle at least a dozen times a day on YouTube. It's wonderful and to think the fall out from it has caused Liverpool to bottle the league.
