Liverpool opinion: Win or lose, this season should be cherished as Jurgen Klopp creates a base for the future
Liverpool showed their mettle against Cardiff City as they ran out 2-0 winners.
The Bluebirds gave it their all, but Liverpool have bigger plans for the remainder of the campaign.
The win took our tally to 88 points, the most we have ever recorded in the Premier League era. Yet, there is a chance we won’t end the season with the Premier League title.
Liverpool could win their last three games and finish on 97 points, but Manchester City could pip us by a solitary point.
Not winning the title would be a bit of a disappointment, but this season has shown that Liverpool are turning into a different beast under Jurgen Klopp.
Reds need one small slip from City
The Reds still could end up with the Premier League title but City have to drop points in their remaining fixtures.
Of course, we need to win our Premier League games and City play three of their last four league games away from home.
This includes trips to Manchester United, Burnley and Brighton, none of them sure wins. Pep Guardiola’s men have also played some high-intensity games in recent weeks, and that could take a toll on them.
Klopp creating something brilliant at Liverpool
Liverpool have been a beast this season and are waiting to pick up should City make a mistake. We have lost just one game in the Premier League all season, and have one of the best defences in Europe.
The ride so far has been exciting too, despite the lack of the crazy one-sided wins from last season.
That doesn’t take anything away from the team. In fact, we seem to control games against the big sides as easily as the lesser talented ones.
Second-half goals have become a norm for the Reds in recent weeks with important strikes against Chelsea and Cardiff giving us 2-0 wins.
The Reds work hard all around the park, and there really isn’t a kink in the armour. Yes, we could do with more creativity in the heart of the park but our full-backs give us another dimension in the attack.
Jurgen Klopp has turned the side around in his four years at Anfield, and the great bit is, he seems to be making the side better in every campaign.
Reds dominant in Europe again
Liverpool are doing equally well in the Champions League since returning to Europe’s elite club competition.
We have defeated Manchester City, AS Roma, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli in the last two seasons, and are set to face Barcelona in the semi-finals.
This Liverpool side can take on the best without any fear, and it will be an interesting clash to see how we deal with the genius of Lionel Messi.
In fact, Klopp hasn’t lost a two-legged European tie during his time at Anfield.
The Reds have a fantastic base to build upon and we have added quality in each season under Klopp. Liverpool would be winning the league if it wasn’t for a team like Manchester City competing against us.
City have a better squad compared to ours, but that hasn’t stopped us from taking them on.
