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.
The Reds currently sit 7th in the Premier League with 46 points, 5 points below 4th placed Chelsea. Making the top 4 won’t even be easy for the Reds with the way the season is progressing, and this will be a disaster for the Merseyside outfit.
The win away to Wolves was a good one but it remains to be seen if the Reds are coming back to their best or if it was a one-off.
Well, we’ll get to know in the coming days as they return to Premier League action this weekend away to Arsenal at the Emirates and this will be a stern test of their credentials to bounce back.
Meanwhile, the 2020/21 Premier League season is one that the Reds would want to run its course quickly and be forgotten.
It’s a season where Anfield the fortress became the best venue for visiting teams to garner maximum points. It will arguably be one of the talking points of the season.
The Reds are yet to secure a point in their last 6 Premier League games at Anfield and no one would have predicted this before the season and even after they started struggling. We could say that they’ve been on a run of losses at home.
We won’t take our eyes away from the Reds this season. Can they bounce back when Premier League action returns, or will they continue in their recently found poor form? We’ll know more in the coming weeks.
