RESULTS WENT OUR WAY ON SUNDAY

Results largely went our way in the Premier on Sunday with Man City and Man Utd only drawing their games, while Spurs defeated Arsenal to likely consign them to the Europa League for next Season.

Now we are level on points, goal-difference and goals scored with Man City in the League with a play-off a remote possibility in the event that results continue as they have.

Meanwhile Man Utd seem to have too many injuries to mount a serious Top Four challenge this late in the season.

Remaining Fixtures:

Liverpool
Man City
Man Utd
Watford (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Arsenal (A)
Southampton (H)
Leicester (H)
Spurs (A)
West Ham (A)
WBA (H)
Southampton (A)
Middlesbrough (H)
Watford (A)
Crystal Palace (H)

Let us hope that Liverpool seize the lifeline that we have been given and capitalize on it by beating a steady mid-table team in Watford tonight as the Top-Four is a must for Liverpool this Season, no more slip-ups Reds.

BENTEKE PUTS OLD TEAM LIVERPOOL TO THE SWORD

Cristian Benteke scored twice against the club that sold him last Summer as two goals from the Crystal Palace forward were enough to end Liverpool's seven game unbeaten run and places them in danger of missing out on the Champion's League again.


Liverpool began brightly with Phillippe Coutinho scoring a great free-kick in the 24th minute, but it was all downhill after that with Big Sam Allardyce's Palace team managing to subdue Liverpool for the rest of the match.

Liverpool without Sadio Mané, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana in their ranks toiled in the Anfield sunshine and were undone by a former player so hastily discarded last Season.

Benteke obviously had a point to prove to Klopp and exacted his revenge against his former club with ice-cold precision.

So now the race for the top four suddenly looks a lot harder with Man City, Man Utd and even Arsenal able to overtake us if they win their two or three games in hand.

Four games left for Liverpool to win and hope that others below them slip up.

LIVERPOOL GAINING IMPRESSIVE RESULTS DESPITE INJURIES

Liverpool has been gaining some good results lately despite the absence of some key players during that time, leaving them in 3rd in the League with more games played than their rivals Man City, United and Arsenal.


Somehow, we have beaten Arsenal, Burnley, Everton, Stoke and West Brom in the past six weeks and drawn with Man City and Bournemouth.

All this without Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mané, Lallana, Matip at times, Lovren too, not to mention Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings, out injured for most of the season.

Credit goes to Manager ~Jurgen Klopp and the players he has put out in each game. While we may not always win in the magnificent style we have become used to under Klopp, their is now no doubt we are headed in the right direction under this Manager.

After over a year in charge, he is now understanding the workings of the Premier League and all the demands that come with it.

Unbeaten against the top seven is a remarkable achievement in itself, to lose only five games in the League all Season shows that he is getting to grips with things as Liverpool Manager.

Lets hope that we do finish in the top four and qualify for the Champion's League next Season, its what we deserve.

WHY THIS STAT MAY ENSURE A TOP FOUR FINISH FOR LIVERPOOL

After Saturday's 3-1 defeat of Everton in the derby at Anfield, one interesting point has emerged for the remainder of the Season.
We have played all the top 7 teams in the Premier League still unbeaten and we don't meet any of them again in 2016/17.


We have to play Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Middlesbrough at home and Stoke, WBA, Watford and West Ham away in our finish to the 2017 Premier League campaign.

Difficult games there for sure against clubs we have lost to already this Season, yet we seemed to have turned a corner lately.

We have learned how to protect a lead against teams we had struggled against earlier in the Campaign.
 
Yes, we still give away silly goals from corners but a resilience is finally emerging in Jurgen Klopp's second season at Liverpool.

We sit pretty in 3rd and if we can maintain this momentum then we have a good chance of staying in the top four and qualifying for The Champion's League.

Fingers crossed.
