Liverpool has up until now had a season to forget, with their Premier League title defence collapsing in the middle of injuries to crucial gamers and extraordinary outcomes at Anfield.
But Sky Sports expert Jamie Redknapp states their season can still end in splendor.
Liverpool takes a trip to Arsenal on Sky Sports on Saturday requiring a success to enhance their hopes of closing the space on the leading 4, prior to dealing with Real Madrid in the very first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
Speaking on the Pitch to Post Preview Podcast, Redknapp described why – in spite of their battles this season – Liverpool advocates can still be positive of an amazing surface to 2020/21 …
‘ A huge week for Liverpool’
“It’s a massive week for Liverpool. At the start of the year, we’d expect them to be in this position in the Champions League, but we certainly wouldn’t have expected them to be in this position in the Premier League.
“It’s been a truly difficult season for them – however it can be a season that ends in splendor.
“They have a fantastic opportunity to not just win a trophy but also get in the top four. They are still in a great position in the Champions League, where they’re playing against a Real Madrid team that isn’t the same that they were years ago. There’s so much to play for there.
“But today for Jurgen Klopp, he’ll be believing ‘take each video game as it comes. I understand it seems like an old cliché in football however it’s the very best method for them to set about it. If they can get an excellent outcome versus Arsenal on Saturday it puts a bit of pressure on Leicester, Tottenham, Manchester United, that they believe ‘we can still capture them’. There’s a lot to bet in this duration for them.
“Chelsea is looking like a team in a good run of form but we know how quickly that can change. We saw Frank Lampard was on a great 17-game run and all of a sudden that changed. It only takes a little bit of confidence to go, and Liverpool might think they can still get that top-four place. It’s not out of the question for them.
“They would not be my favourites today due to the fact that of the injuries they have actually had however they have actually definitely got an opportunity due to the fact that groups are going to begin to get a bit edgy due to the fact that they understand what’s at stake.
“They can attack these last few weeks of the season and try to salvage something out of it, and to an extent that is the case for Liverpool. Yes, a lot of the players haven’t played to their potential, but they’ve had an awful lot go against them, that’s not making excuses. It’s been hard for them.
“There is still a lot to anticipate. They’ve got pedigree in the Champions League, as all of us understand. They will think, if they can make it through this video game versus Real Madrid, they have actually got a good attract the next one (versus Porto or Chelsea and they have actually missed out on the similarity Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and Man City.
“They will believe they can end up the season with a trophy and a top-four place, it would still end up being a great season for them.”
