Liverpool are on course for a historic quadruple after picking up the Carabao Cup courtesy of an 11-10 penalty shootout victory against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday.
The Reds won their first domestic cup in more than 10 years after 120+ minutes of battle with Thomas Tuchel’s men who only fell short due to a skied Kepa penalty.
Jurgen Klopp and co can now start dreaming about adding the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup to their 2022 trophy haul.
The Premier League
A few weeks ago, the Premier League title race seemed to be over when Manchester City stretched their lead at the top to eight points. We wouldn’t have blamed City backers for heading to casinochan 3 to celebrate their win ahead of time.
As we come to the end of February, Pep Guardiola’s men are just three points ahead of Liverpool who have played one game less.
If the Reds are to win every game from now until the end of the season, they will be crowned Premier League champions. Now, that will be a tough ask but Liverpool are in fine form and are clearly able to match City win for win this season.
We’re sure both teams will drop points in the remaining games and the league will is likely to be decided when the top two clash at the Etihad Stadium on April 10.
While they may not be favourites, Liverpool are very much capable of upsetting City to become the PL champions for the second time in three years.
Liverpool have one foot in the UCL quarter-final after picking up a sensational 2-0 win over Inter Milan at the San Siro earlier this month.
The Italian side will travel to Anfield next week and will be dead set on avenging that defeat and advancing to the next round but it’s hard to back against Liverpool in this position.
In terms of odds, Liverpool are once again trailing Manchester City who are the favoruites to lift the Champions League. However, Liverpool are ranked as most likely to upset City in this competition also.
The Reds have an excellent historic and recent record in European competitions and have proved to be a nightmare over two legs throughout Klopp’s Liverpool tenure.
We certainly wouldn’t back against Liverpool winning a seventh European Cup.
During his time on Merseyside, Klopp has faced some criticism for disrespecting the domestic cups. However, this season he’s definitely changed his attitude towards them and that has been evidenced by Liverpool’s winning run in the Carabao Cup.
After just two games in this season’s FA Cup, it has already become clear that Liverpool are in it to win it this season. The Reds eased through home ties against Shrewsbury and Cardiff to book a fourth-round match against Norwich at Anfield. It’s certainly another favorurable draw and one you’d expect Liverpool to get through.
Once again, Liverpool are second-favorites behind Man City to lift this trophy, and having not won it since 2006, the Scousers are desperate to add another FA Cup to their collection.
