Liverpool have had one of the greatest Premier League seasons since the competition began, racking up 94 points with a game to go.
It’s the third highest points total ever – only Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City last season and Jose Mourinho’s 2005 Chelsea team have managed higher.
Jurgen Klopp has also guided his side to the Champions League semi-final, of course, maintaining Liverpool’s incredible league form at the same time.
And yet, somehow, they’re not actually favourites to win anything this season.
They performed well in Barcelona but lost the first leg of their semi-final 3-0. Then there’s the fact that City have somehow matched their Premier League pace.
Liverpool have undoubtedly performed like champions this season – in all but three Premier League seasons they would have been.
Their record against teams outside the top six is phenomenal, while they’ve still only lost one game this season, away to City.
One other way they’ve performed like champions is their ability to score decisive late goals.
Liverpool have won numerous games through striking late – as shown by a new video that showcases the goals.
You can check the video out below:
The 1m41s video shows off goals like Daniel Sturridge’s wondergoal at Stamford Bridge, as well as Divock Origi’s arguably equally impressive strike against Everton.
The most recent was, of course, Liverpool’s late winner against Newcastle United.
A mix of Origi and Jamaal Lascelles put it in, moving the Reds onto 94 points with a game to go.
City face Leicester City on Monday, yet again needing a win to keep the title in their own hands.
Should both of the title challengers win all of their remaining games, Liverpool would finish second with 97 points – the second most in history and far away the most for second place.
Considering Leicester won the title with 76 points, it’s quite remarkable that Klopp and co. may not win it this season.
But there’s still time to change that – and Leicester themselves may be the key to doing so.
