The 2020/21 PL season suddenly became long for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp and his men would be happy for the ongoing international break. The German tactician will have some time to restrategize ahead of upcoming games in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. One funny fact is that the Reds are doing very well in the UEFA Champions League but somehow find it difficult to garner points in the Premier League. It's good that they managed to win a Premier League game before the international break. We could say they went into the break on a high as they sealed a place in the quarter-final of the UCL against Real Madrid and beat Wolves at the Molineux in their last Premier League game. However, how Liverpool went from red hot defending champions and title contenders to top 4 contenders remains a strange sight. READ: Sagna lauds...

Anfield – The bane of visiting teams in the Premier League

Liverpool are not leaving anything to chance in their quest to defend the Premier League title and are doing themselves a lot of good by making Anfield the major fortress in the Premier League.

Liverpool are tied on points at the top with Tottenham Hotspur on 24 points after they thrashed Wolves 4 nil at Anfield on Sunday night and sit second in the Premier League. The Reds have continued their incredible domestic form in the Premier League despite the injuries to some key players in the team in recent times.

The Dutch center-back was awarded the PFA Player of the Year after an impressive season with the Reds in which they finished as runners-up to Manchester City with just a point's difference. Van Dijk was also very instrumental in Liverpool's triumph in the UEFA Champions League and won the man of the match award in the 2 nil win over Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the competition. “He gives a lot of confidence for the team and the players,” Alisson told Liverpool's website. “When you have Virgil van Dijk – the giant – on the pitch, maybe it scares the opposition.
