The English Premier League is watched by many all around the world and the players in the teams are some of the best out there.
This year, Liverpool FC have been leading the pack and currently sit in the top position on the leaderboard. Here, we are going to look at the possibility of Liverpool winning the league and walking away with the trophy on 12th May 2019. Keep reading if you’d like to find out more.
Last Year’s Performance
Before we look at the performance of Liverpool FC this season, we are going to take a look at where they ended up in the 2017/18 season. Liverpool FC came in fourth place under Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Overall, they managed to win 21 matches, lose 5 and draw 12. Their total points were 75 which was just under Tottenham Hotspur who had 77 in the end. This was impressive from Liverpool but in fourth place, they were still quite far away from the top position that they have the potential to win this year.
While there are still many matches to be played, Liverpool are currently in the top position on the Premier League leaderboard. They have so far played 31 matches, winning a huge 23 of these and have only lost one game. This puts them ahead of all of the teams that beat them last season and so they are in a relatively good position based on their current performance. Last year’s winners Manchester City are in a close second, however, with 74 points in comparison to Liverpool’s 76. Make sure to keep an eye on the football results which websites like Stakers regularly update if you want to keep up to date with the current standings and how well Liverpool FC is doing.
This season, Liverpool FC has some really impressive players that have put on a very good performance so far. The squad is managed by Jürgen Klopp, a German professional football coach who is known as one of the best managers in the world. Their goalkeeper Alisson from Brazil has already made 31 appearances and so far, has 17 clean sheets. This has made a massive impact on Liverpool’s current standing and their other goalkeeper Mignolet is yet to make an appearance due to how impressive Alisson has been.
Other top players in the Liverpool squad who have been making a big impression this season are Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. Both of these players have managed to score a lot of goals and have made appearances in nearly every single match. Salah has managed to score 17 goals so far, along with 7 assists. Firmino has scored 11 goals with 5 assists. It is clear that these players are fierce competition for the other teams, and they have made a huge impact on getting Liverpool into the top position.
One of the strong points for Liverpool FC is their attack and they have managed to score 70 goals so far this season. This works out to around 2.19 goals per match and so this quite impressive. It’s also important to note that they have managed to make 189 shots on target with a 40% shooting accuracy. Other attacking stats include 6 penalties being scored and 61 big chances created. While their attack stats aren’t as good as they could be, they have still managed to score enough goals to secure them the top spot on the league table so far.
While attacking is important in any football match, the defence side can be just as important if the other team are good at getting their goals on target. Thanks to Alisson, Liverpool have secured 17 clean sheets and only 18 goals conceded so far. There have been 23 saves, 252 interceptions and 524 clearances. These are some pretty good stats and it shows that Liverpool has quite a good defence side.
When looking at whether Liverpool have the chance of winning the Premier League title in 2019, we also need to look at their discipline. So far, they have received 32 yellow cards and 2 red cards. Their fouls total is as high as 164 and they have racked up 61 offsides this season so far. While these stats seem quite high, there have been many games played since the season started last year. It is, however, good to recognise which players are at risk of getting a red or yellow card as this could affect the overall performance of the team.
Will They Win?
It’s clear from the current stats that Liverpool FC are very good contenders for the 2018/19 Premier League Title. We expect that in their next few matches they will continue with their good form and impress football fans all over the country. With top players on the squad including Alisson and Salah, this team is set to have a good end result and hopefully end up in the top position. If they don’t end up winning, we still expect to see them in the final coming up against one of the other teams near the top such as Tottenham or Man City.
Liverpool FC have had their good and bad seasons over the past few years, but Jürgen Klopp is set to bring this team to victory in 2018/19. If you are a Liverpool fan or think that this team is going to win, we suggest placing a bet on the final to see if this team can help you bring home a lot of cash. With many goals and clean sheets already under their belt, they are sure to at least end up near the top if not walking away with the title when the final comes along. Make sure to keep your eye on this team.
