Although the majority of football twitter has united in waging against the possibility of Liverpool winning the league, there are still some neutrals who are truly in their favour. Today, I’ve put aside my Arsenal bias and gone into depth as to why Liverpool deserve to win the English Premier League.
How unbelievable would it be for a team that’s only lost one game all season, to somehow not win the league! The Reds are literally on course to finish on 97 points, however, if Manchester City win their remaining games, they will retain their title.
Meaning Liverpool could finish on the highest points tally ever for a 2nd placed side. The funny thing is, that one loss of the season came against Man City where the Champions narrowly scraped a 2-1 win at the Etihad. A match which saw Pep’s men put in a final worthy performance, ending the game with most of the team sitting behind the ball.
In contrast to Liverpool’s amazing one loss record, Manchester City have lost four games this season two more than they did last season. Sir Alex Ferguson once famously said a title-winning team cannot lose more three games in a campaign, Man City look set to break that unwritten rule. While if Liverpool were to win, it’d fit the form of previous title winners.
