Agency – Liverpool was flying last season (2021-22). Merseyside club was chasing quadruple throughout last season. While they end up winning a domestic double, FA Cup, and the Carabao Cup, Jurgen Klopp’s side miss out on the Premier League title to eventual champion Manchester City only by a point and was defeated by Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Last season Liverpool played every game possible in club football. They played a total of 63 games throughout the season. The Reds won 46 out of 63 matches and lost only 4 matches.

Last season, they did not lose in any other game than 2 games in the Premier League and 2 games in the Champions League. Liverpool finished just one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Liverpool, which was competing for four titles less than a year ago, is struggling for the top 4 this season. They are still unable to shake off his poor form from the start of the season. Over that, the quiet January window adds salt to the wounds of club fans.

They are currently in ninth place in the Premier League. After playing 19 games of the season, they have won only 8 games. They stand on 29 points after losing 6 matches.

Liverpool is 21 points behind leaders Arsenal and is also 10 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United. In addition to that, Liverpool is out of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup being defending champions in both competitions.

Similarly, in the Champions League, Liverpool has prepared for a trip to the last 16. But it will be very difficult for Liverpool to progress from there. Liverpool will face last season’s champions Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League. It will be no less than an iron gate for Liverpool to beat Real, who were on high form last season.

Decisive month?

February, the second month of the year, will be very important for Liverpool, as they continue to fumble in January too, which has been the case for them throughout this term. This month will also decide whether or not Liverpool will be in the top four.

Liverpool will play a total of five games this month. Liverpool will face five teams in a total of five games, four under the Premier League and one under the Champions League.

Liverpool will face Wolves, Newcastle United, and Crystal Palace away from home, while they will face Everton and Real Madrid at Anfield. All these games will prove to be vital for them.

To finish the season in the top 4, they have to win every game possible from now on. As things stand, they are not on course to play Champions League next season.
