And there it is, a 2-2 draw against arch-rivals Manchester United leaves the Reds tied for first
place in the league. Only Arsenal is ahead of the Reds through goal difference. The result is disappointing, especially considering the chances that presented themselves throughout the game. But, while this certainly dented the Reds’ title hopes, it’s far from fatal. The remainder of the season is still abundant with opportunities for Liverpool to get the upper hand yet again and soften the impact of the stalemate with their eternal rivals.

A Concerning Statistic

In what’s been, mostly, a successful season for the Reds on the winning front, their record against the league’s top six doesn’t exactly translate into dominance. If we are going to include the recent draw against Man United, the Reds have played top six opponents eight times. They’ve won once, drawn five times, and lost twice. Doing the math, that’s 8 points achieved out of a possible 24.


The impact of this mediocrity has proved damaging for the Reds to an extent. If the Reds managed to convert one or two of these games into a victory they’d have a relatively sizable lead at the top of the league table.

The sample size presents itself as something to improve for the Reds. Thankfully, they still have the opportunity to improve upon this somewhat. They’ll have key fixtures versus Spurs at Anfield on May 5th and away to Aston Villa the following week.

Been There Done That

If there’s an element of confidence we Reds supporters should carry towards the end of this season. It’s the fact that we’ve got a healthy dose of players who know what it takes to win the Premier League. Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Mo Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, and Joe Gomez were key players in Liverpool’s last title win in 2019/2020. That sextet’s impact has been massive regarding Klopp’s plans throughout the season.


For the Reds to remain in the race, and hopefully win the whole thing, many in the squad will be looking to these players to help see this out the right way. Not to mention, we have a cadre of players who are hungry to win the biggest prize in English football. This last stretch of this season will be a very interesting watch.

Keep The Faith

There are a sizable number of Reds fans who are hurting following that damaging draw against Man United. It’s understandable. However, as previously stated, only goal difference separates the Reds from current leaders Arsenal with seven games to go. It feels like an eternity remains in the league.

The boys need us to lift them more than ever. We might have trouble doing that if we let the impact of certain setbacks overwhelm us. While this was a disappointing result, it’s not the end of the world. I back our boys to come back stronger in these last seven league games, and the knockout stages of the Europa League.

The gaffer needs us to be believers again. Let’s do just that and buckle up. We’ve got a league title to win!
