Can Liverpool win the title?
Liverpool are one of England’s most prestigious clubs and the Reds have enjoyed plenty of success throughout their illustrious, long-standing history. Liverpool have won 19 league titles, five European Cups and seven FA Cups since they were established in 1892.
The Reds haven’t won the league title since 1990 but this season, Jurgen Klopp’s men have a genuine chance of success and, as of December 10th, are priced at just 12/1 to win the Premier League this season in Coral’s football odds. They are currently just nine points behind leaders Leicester City and Klopp’s side are likely to improve further throughout the campaign.
Prior to Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle last weekend, the Reds were full of confidence and climbing the Premier League table at a rapid rate. Klopp has been a breath of fresh air at Anfield so far and Liverpool’s players have settled quickly into life under their new manager.
Their talented stars have all bought into Klopp’s style and philosophy, and his “gegenpress” technique has been incredibly successful in the top flight so far – especially against England’s elite clubs. Liverpool have earned convincing victories away at Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton in recent weeks and will continue to climb the table under Klopp’s leadership.
Tony Pulis’ men won’t just lie down and let Liverpool have it easy at Anfield on Sunday and the Baggies have already caused problems for a number of Premier League clubs this season. They earned a 2-1 victory over Arsenal and held Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw last weekend and Liverpool will need to be at their very best to secure all three points in this clash.
However, with both Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson set to return from injury, Liverpool will be quietly confident of defeating Albion this weekend. The Reds are in great form and will be looking to show that last weekend’s defeat was an anomaly as they start to mount their title challenge. Without a doubt, Klopp’s Liverpool are capable of winning the title this season and will look for a positive result this weekend to kick-start a title run.
