On the other hand, we have the Red Devils led by Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool. A team that has been the best in recent years, winning all the competitions in which they have participated. However, this year they have fallen into a pothole from which it has been difficult for them to get out. Despite reaching the Champions League quarter-finals, their performance has declined as shown by their current position in the Premier League. Liverpool currently sits in sixth place in the table, out of Europa League and Champions League spots, just 1 point behind West Ham, who so far, is the owner of the direct pass to the Europa League. Liverpool currently has a record of 15 wins, 9 draws, and 9 losses, with 54 points out of 99 possible, that is, they have lost almost half of the points played.
Liverpool is coming off two consecutive draws, one against Leeds and the other against Newcastle, both with a score of 1-1. In their last game against Newcastle, Liverpool deserved the victory, but the ineffectiveness of their attackers when scoring goals denied them the victory.
