It’s time to crown Liverpool Champions


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

The Premier League season would have ended on Sunday, May 17th. Currently, it’s suspended until May 31st. We’re into the fifth week with no football. It’s time to stop delaying the inevitable.

Crown Liverpool.

Sure, there are a number of other things that need to be figured out. I’ll get into that separately. But this one is a no brainer.

Let’s look at the facts. The Reds sit in first, 25 points ahead of Manchester City with nine matches to go. City has a game in hand. So let’s say they win that. That’s a 22 point gap with a total of 27 points possible to pick up by the end of the season. All they really need are two wins to clinch. And that would be HIGHLY likely. Teams have bottled title opportunities in the recent past, but to tumble out of this lead would mean Liverpool players laying down after kickoff.

They’re on pace for a record breaking season. Their only loss of the season came on February 29th. There is only one other game they haven’t won, and it was a draw. That’s 26 wins and 1 draw before their first loss for those of you not paying attention.

It’s not likely they would completely win out, but let’s say they do. That would see them end the season with 109 points. That’s 12 points higher than they finished last season, when they set the third highest points total in Premier League history (97) and still didn’t win the league.

Unsurprisingly, they have the most efficient defense in the league, allowing just 21 goals over 29 matches. That’s insane. Led by Dutchman Virgil van Dijk, the Liverpool back line is a fortress. They simply don’t allow you to score. So even if they do have a rare struggle offensively, it’s unlikely a club will be able to take advantage.

Many players from Manchester City are complaining about the plaudits given to Liverpool players. That’s hilarious to me. A team that is as close to perfection as we’ve seen has the potential to break City’s points record. Even Arsenal’s Invincibles only amassed 90 points in their unbeaten campaign.

Whether or not they finish out the season, Liverpool has done more than enough to deserve the trophy. So let’s just give it to them already.
