Coach Juergen Klopp constantly complains about Liverpool’s defensive ability. However, this is the season “The Kop” has bad luck because of a series of defensive pillars. Virgil van Dijk is more likely to end the season because of a ligament rupture. Fabinho was pulled back to the center-back but injured. Trent Alexander-Arnold was injured in the last match against Man City. Recently, Joe Gomez extended the list of Liverpool’s sick.

Manchester City had a slow start to the season this year. With Man City, they won 12 points after 7 games and ranked 10th. In Pep Guardiola’s career as a manager, he and the team never started so badly in the domestic league. Man City dropped the score in 4/7 matches, including a bad 2-5 home defeat against Leicester City.

Man United is worse than Man City

Not Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, or Sergio Aguero, who is leading the scoring list is Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The Everton striker had 8 goals in 8 games, equal to the performance of Son Heung-min. Calvert-Lewin’s excellent performance once put Everton at the top of the chart. However, Everton ran out of breath in recent matches and fell to 7th place.

Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students have won the English Premier League title since June. However, they have not been able to celebrate the title with the fans. The Covid-19 pandemic caused the teams to play in an empty stadium.It also forced fans to watch from afar, avoiding crowds.

How did Liverpool receive the Cup amidst the COVID-19 pandemic?

Because of Covid-19, Liverpool had to follow the unprecedented rules of the Premier League after the match against Chelsea.

Without fans coming to celebrate at Anfield, Liverpool will hold a sound and light show on the occasion of returning to the English football throne after 30 years of waiting.

They have set up the stage in the stands and the players will stand scattered in this area during the ceremony. The rest of the yard will be turned off, followed by a light show, on the soundtrack of the song A Sky Full of Stars by Cold Play.

Liverpool are ranked 14th in the Premier League for player purchases

The amount of money spent on Liverpool’s transfer of the last 5 years is 136.4 million USD – only one sixth of Man City.

This football team used to spend huge sums of money to recruit Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker, but it was offset by the sale of Coutinho to Barca for $ 183 million.

Liverpool succeeded by buying and selling tactics

Liverpool are only 14th in net spending over the past five years in the Premier League, far behind the $ 763.3 million of the leading team Man City. Man Utd ranked second with 615 million USD. Third place goes to Arsenal with $ 340 million.

Chelsea stands right above Liverpool, when only spending $ 146.5 million. The Stamford Bridge team managed to partially balance the trade thanks to Eden Hazard’s sale to Real Madrid last year. However, if the purchase of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig for $ 68 million is confirmed, the amount of Chelsea will increase again.

Tottenham is the team that actually spent at least among the six big teams: $ 135 million. Meanwhile, Norwich are the only team in the 20 Premier League teams this season to make a profit from a five-year transfer. They earned 32.3 million USD. However, Norwich are currently last and most likely relegated.

Liverpool was praised for not buying Werner

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore thinks that Timo Werner has not reached the level of Ronaldo or Messi for the old club to buy at all costs.

Since last summer, rumors of Liverpool pursuing Werner have emerged. However, when the contract between Chelsea and the German international was completed, the Leipzig representative said, Liverpool did not make any offers to ask, although Werner is playing the best season of his career with 31 goals in 41 matches.

Many British newspapers say that the $ 68 million fee for Werner is the main reason why Liverpool dropped Leipzig striker in the summer of 2020. But Collymore thinks that the cause is entirely in expertise.

Compared to Liverpool, Chelsea is at the stage of reconstruction in Frank Lampard’s era. At Stamford Bridge, the 24-year-old striker was almost certain to start.
