Liverpool are into the final month of the season and are left with potentially seven key fixtures in their quest for Quadruple.
The Reds are entering into the final month of the season, after seeing off a hectic month of April. Liverpool defeated Newcastle in a narrow win of 1-0 in the last game of April.
Meanwhile, City’s win against Leeds United leaves Liverpool still in second place in the league table.
Therefore, in the remainder of Premier League fixtures, Liverpool have to be at their absolute best. Meanwhile, hope for City to drop points.
But the worry for Liverpool fans seems, that neither of the teams looks likely to drop points, which will ultimately hand the trophy to Man City.
Other the other hand, Klopp’s men have an important final to play at Wembley in the FA Cup. Also, the Reds have one foot in the Champions League final. The Reds are in a commanding position with 2-0 lead in the semis of the Champions League tie against Villarreal.
