So that makes it 4 straight losses at Anfield after a two and a half seasons of domination after Everton defeated them at Anfield yesterday. The Premier League champion’s title defense has been torn apart and humiliated, much like how Manchester United 13/14, Chelsea 15/16 and Leicester City 16/17 did. Liverpool are desperately floundering in the Premier League while the only hope could be the Champions League.
Liverpool should emulate their 2004/05 season and qualify for the Champions League by winning it
Liverpool finished 5th in the Premier League in the 2004/05 season, but ended up mounting an impossible comeback to defeat AC Milan to win the Champions League. Liverpool are currently terrible in the Premier League and they should hope to emulate the 2004/05 season by aiming for the Champions League atleast. They have played well in 6 of their 7 matches in the Champions League with the bad performance coming against Atalanta. They now hold a 2 goal advantage over RB Leipzig in their first leg clash in the Round of 16.
Liverpool could qualify for the Champions League next year by winning the trophy this season, but they could lose out on the money you get for qualifying to the Champions League by finishing in the top 4 of your domestic league. Liverpool’s Premier League form is abysmal to put it respectfully and it is illogical to hope that there will be a sudden upheaval of form. Liverpool need to win atleast 10 games on the trot while also expecting others above them to lose in order to get top 4. The red side of Merseyside could do good to forego the Premier League and focus on the Champions League.
