Wolves and man city away seem the only slim chances of them losing a game at this rate

 

I will say this again pep and Klopps teams are the fittest football teams I have ever seen in this league

 

Henderson  was barley even sweating at the end there.

Liverpool will soon be able to take their foot off the gas pedal and practically walk to finish line.

VVD and Gomez have hardly had much to do other then clear long balls and simple headers. No one is putting any kind of pressure on them. Agreed the running that midfield and front three are doing is insane!!!

if they play it right and balance the teams they pick for each game (would probably need a couple of lucky fa cup draws) then i don't think there's much stopping them from going unbeaten in the league and winning the treble. which would be remarkable. 

 

along with already winning the world cup and the super cup. 

 

they are just really fu cking good.

It's strange because although I've always disliked Liverpool I used to enjoy watching them play. Especially 2017/18 where despite finishing only fourth they were arguably most entertaining in the league and made the CL final. But that was with Karius in goal and before VVD came in. So they were really attacking but capable of letting goals in making good games in along the way

 

Now they've just become efficient. Just do enough to win games in third gear and are obviously a better team, just not as enjoyable to watch. They deserve to win the league with record points which I think they'll do. Also think they could go unbeaten. 

 

Just will never take to them though, and prefer other sides over them. I'm sick of the Liverpool bias on all football programmes to. Become ridiculous.

Most ruthless, powerful side I've ever seen.

 

Pep's City at their peak were far better to watch and Pep's Barca are the best I've ever seen but these are brilliant in a different way. Powerful, quick and will outrun anyone. 2 CL finals in a row on top of their ridiculous domestic form and I wouldn't put it past them to make it to another one this season. They're bastards but fair play to Klopp, done an amazing job.

Are Liverpool as good as peak Barcelona yet? I think that's the next milestone for them to reach and they're probably not far off.

 

The only downside as a neutral is that they're not very entertaining they just seem to win every game they play.

They probably won’t be far off winning more in 5 years time but they’re a worse team. This current team are a ruthless winning machine but they’re quite dull, without any redeeming characters and a c unt of a manager

Someone really needs to go at them. I really really hope they lose a few, I quite liked the Arsenal Invincibles team and really don't want these to do it as well. They're obviously gonna win the league but I hope they don't do it at quite such a canter. So boring. I don't even think they play great looking football, they're just ruthlessly efficient. X 

won't be seen as the same. this is the first title under VAR.

They’re great, no question.  But I still say if they’re really tuned in, on their best day, Pep’s Man City May be better.  It’s just they’re at the end of their cycle and everyone’s got a wandering eye now.  But if they meet in the CL, where MC still have a huge motivation, it could be very interesting.

Like Pep's Barcelona, then.

Terhe's now doubting how good this Liverpool team are, but I can't help but think that the standard of the league is very poor. So many teams have been really inconsistent.

Ranked! Every Premier League team of the 2010s, by total points

 

https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/ranked-every-premier-league-team-2010s-total-points-table-decade-man-city-man-utd-chelsea-liverpool

 

We all know that in the last decade, Manchester City won four Premier League titles, Chelsea won three, Manchester United (remember them?) won two and Leicester City – do not adjust your set – won one.

But who won the 2010-19 Premier League – which we at FourFourTwo have decided is A Thing?

That’s right: we crammed every single match played in the top flight into our Special Maths Machine™, donned our safety goggles, cranked the lever, then scanned at the reams of paper printing off and shouted “Great Scott!”

 

 

We're 14th

 

Below West Brom and Swansea are 2016 champions Leicester. However, if you work it out by points per game (which our Special Maths Machine™ also does), the Foxes find themselves in eighth, below only the decade’s mainstays. Impressively, by that measure,

I almost feel bad for him. He's clearly *trying* to play out from the back and charge into midfield like he used to but Manchester Utd simply have no midfield to connect up to. So he's left aimlessly wandering out of the box with the ball at his feet like a child looking for his mum.

Spurs only 5th? But, but i thought they won the league over those 3 straight seasons...oh wait, nevermind.

The ever excellent Kieran Maguire, whose Price of Football Podcast I fully recommend, highlighting again the ridiculous West Ham Stadium deal, which sees the company that owns the stadium make yet another horrendous loss...

If for whatever freak reason E20 LLP go bust, what happens to the ground? Assuming a different owner came in, would that massively unsettle West Ham staying there?
