Liverpool wants to finally finish its 29-year losing streak and bring the first English championship since 1990. In the second season under Jürgen Klopp, it looks as good as years ago. However, the starting point a few months ago was a class better. The "Reds" have spent the international break at the top, but also played a game more than Manchester City.
Klopp’s men must stand behind the defending champion. At the turn of the year, it seemed as if Liverpool would bring his 19th championship title only in the Liverpool already had a lead of seven points on the Citizens. With the first game in the new year came the slump. In a direct duel, Liverpool FC won with an astonishing 1:2 and lost the rest of the lead in the episode. Ironically, a witness in the Merseyside derby cost the Klopp squad the league lead.
In the pursuit role, Sadio Mané and Co. seem to feel much better. The last two league games were won and in the Champions League succeeded in the quarter-finals against Bayern Munich. Three competitive matches, three wins, according to the latest results. The coming opponents have it all, already on Sunday waiting with Tottenham the third-placed English Premier League.
