Liverpool Make It 18 Straight Premier League Wins

Jurgen Klopp hailed Liverpool’s history making side as their latest win took them into the record books – and put one hand on the Premier League.

A dramatic second half comeback enabled Liverpool to turn a 2-1 deficit against West Ham into a 3-2 victory.

They now need 12 points from 11 games to become champions, having won 26 of their 27 Premier League fixtures.

The triumph ensured they equalled Manchester City’s all-time record of 18 consecutive top flight wins (from 2017-18) and it also meant Liverpool matched their own all-time record of 21 straight victories at home, set between January and December 1972.

Madrid’s stadium was raucous on Tuesday with fans orchestrated by energetic Atletico manager Diego Simeone.

“Atletico fans who can a get ticket… ‘welcome to Anfield’,” said Klopp.

Could Man City Be Stripped Of 2014 Premier League Title?

Manchester City’s top-flight triumph in 2014 could be chalked off if a Premier League investigation finds financial wrongdoing by the club, according to a report.

An investigation by UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) has already led to City being banned from European competition for the next two seasons, after the club allegedly overstated its sponsorship revenue.

City are set to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after releasing a statement saying they were “disappointed but not surprised” by the ruling.

Klopp: “The Gap Is So Insane”

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged the distance between Liverpool and the rest of the league by saying what most fans think: It’s “insane” how much better the Reds are.

The Reds picked up a typically assured three points at the weekend, winning with a combination of solid defensive work and having enough attacking quality to take a chance.

It might have been a little closer than other games this season, but a win-to-nil has been a familiar scoreline when it comes to the Reds over the last few months.

Absent Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was “delighted” as the youngest team in the club’s history beat Shrewsbury to reach the FA Cup fifth round.

Klopp decided to miss the fourth-round replay because it fell during the Premier League’s winter break.

A Reds side with an average age of 19 years and 102 days set up a tie at Chelsea with a 1-0 win.

“There was a message at half-time and at full-time [from Klopp],” said under-23s boss Neil Critchley.

“There was a message before the game that Chelsea away could be an opportunity for one or two of them and they put in a performance tonight.”

Jurgen Klopp has the full backing of the Liverpool hierarchy over his plan to stay away from his club’s FA Cup fourth-round replay with Shrewsbury.

Klopp said after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at the New Meadow that none of his first-team squad would be involved in next week’s game, which will be on either 4 or 5 February, in the middle of the first week of Liverpool’s winter break.

It is understood Klopp has already told his first-team squad they are free to spend next week as they like before returning to training on 10 February.

Jurgen Klopp says he WON’T manage Liverpool in FA Cup replay

Jurgen Klopp has said he will not take charge of the FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury, with Neil Critchley leading a youth side instead.

The Premier League Champions-Elect were expected to dominate at New Meadow, despite Klopp making 11 changes, but it proved to be the youngsters—and stand-in goalkeeper Adrian—who impressed the most.

Shrewsbury will now head to Anfield for a replay after the 2-2 draw on Sunday, with Klopp still yet to have progressed past the fourth round as Liverpool manager.

The replay is set to be held on February 5/6, disrupting the two-week ‘winter break’.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is not scared of losing but the quest to improve means he occasionally ‘kills the mood’ in his post-match debrief to players.

If the Reds avoid defeat against Sheffield United at Anfield they will have gone 12 months without losing a league match and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently compared them to his ‘Invincibles’ side of the 2003-04 season.

Liverpool have won 17 consecutive league games at Anfield since Leicester came from behind to draw last January, their joint second-best such run at home in their history, and are unbeaten in 50 home league matches stretching back to April 2017.

According to French outlet Le10Sport, Leonardo reached out to Klopp to sound him out about taking over the reins with current boss Thomas Tuchel under increasing pressure.

Tuchel guided PSG to the Ligue 1 title last term but club chiefs are desperate to win the Champions League, and the German is expected to be axed if he cannot deliver it this season.

Pep Guardiola has given up on the title race but ruled out prioritizing cup competitions for fear of missing out on the top four after Manchester City’s latest crushing defeat.

The Premier League champions failed to reduce their 14-point deficit to leaders Liverpool after Wolves completed a stunning comeback victory on a fiery night at Molineux.

Guardiola claimed he will not allow the Champions League or domestic trophies to take precedence – even though defending the title for a second consecutive year now looks impossible. City still have an eight-point cushion over fifth-placed Wolves.
