Liverpool stumbles – already lost their first four titles?
Liverpool’s long-distance match against Manchester City flopped. The Reds have overtaken their rivals in the table once again. A draw with Tottenham should not be enough. Already on Sunday, the citizens can decisively banish Klopp-Elf.
WIs this a fatal error? Liverpool FC can still win three more titles after winning the League Cup: the English Championship, the FA Cup and the Champions League.
However, in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s side had to accept a severe setback in the fight for. The Reds got no more than 1-1 (0-0) in their home game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. Second-placed Luis Diaz saved a point with his goal in the 74th minute. Heung-min Son (56) gave Tottenham the lead.
Van Dijk heads to the crossbar
Liverpool were clearly superior on the pitch and at times they put a lot of pressure on them, but they didn’t know how to express their dominance on the scoreboard. Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris frustrated the few chances of Mohamed Salah (28) and Luis Diaz (42). Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk also hit the crossbar (39).
The visitors’ lead through Son’s 20th goal this season was suitably lucky and until 15 minutes from the end it looked like Klopp’s side would be completely pointless. Then Diaz earned at least one point for the Champions League
The equalizer allowed Liverpool to take the lead again for the time being, but Manchester City managed to beat them again with a point victory over Newcastle United on Sunday.
And according to English media reports, the Liverpool rival is also considering signing French world champion Paul Pogba. The 29-year-old can leave rivals Manchester United for free after the end of the season with the expiration of his contract. The midfielder rejected a new offer from United last summer.
And coach Pep Guardiola’s club, who also wants to bring Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, wants to offer Pogba a four-year contract with an option for another year, according to “The Guardian”. Paris Saint-Germain should also try to attract the French national footballer.
