Can Liverpool Land a Historic Treble?
Liverpool’s hopes of landing four pieces of silverware were dashed recently when the Reds lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup. Goals from Willian and Ross Barkley were enough to beat a fairly strong team, with Jurgen Klopp deciding to forego his previous policy of fielding an Under-23 side for the previous rounds of the competition.
While Klopp was dismayed by the overall performance of his team, the plain fact is that Liverpool will soon be crowned champions of England, with the Premier League title adding to the Club World Championship that was already secured in December when the Merseyside outfit went to Qatar and beat the best that South America had to offer.
In addition, the Reds are still very much in the running to retain a Champions League trophy that was landed against the odds last season, even if Atletico Madrid are proving to be obstinate last sixteen opponents. Bookmaker BetVictor currently offers 6/1 that Liverpool effectively scoop a treble that includes the Club World Championship, Premier League and Champions League this season.
It’s clear that the domestic cups were always going to play second fiddle to the above three competitions this season, although bet365 do also offer 66/1 about Liverpool not winning a meaningful piece of silverware this season. That would mean failing to get over the line in their quest to secure a first Premier League title for thirty years along with exiting the Champions League.
Reds Facing Difficult Champions League Assignment vs Atletico
When the Champions League last sixteen draw was made, the general consensus was that Liverpool had done alright to draw Atletico Madrid despite the fact that the Spanish side boasted a pretty strong European pedigree. After all, Diego Godin had previously been a defensive lynchpin for the team and there was also the fact that Antoine Griezmann had moved to Barcelona in the summer.
However, the first leg encounter at the Wanda Metropolitano saw Klopp’s men frustrated throughout the ninety minutes, with Atleti managing to register an early goal and then successfully kill the match thereafter. Liverpool’s players became increasingly frustrated and it led to the manager substituting Sadio Mane for fear of the Senegalese forward getting sent off and missing the second leg clash.
Some bookmakers now have Liverpool as the outsiders to get through this last sixteen tie which couldn’t be more delicately poised. If you’re prepared to shop around, you can get 19/20 about each side going through, with the current holders not having the luxury of an away goal and that would mean a 1-0 winning scoreline would only take the game into extra-time. Liverpool are 6/1 with Paddy Power to retain their Champions League title.

Has the Winter Break Had a Negative Impact on Liverpool?
The plain fact is that the Reds have gone off the boil since their recent fortnight’s break from the action. After signing off on February 1st with a somewhat flattering 4-0 victory over Southampton, Liverpool then went to Carrow Road and edged a close encounter which could feasibly have gone the way of the team propping up the other teams in the English top flight.
Then came the defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano before the Premier League champions-elect faced West Ham United and Liverpool made an absolute meal of winning that particular encounter. A lively Hammers side came from behind to take a 2-1 lead at Anfield before their opponents got themselves fired up and laid siege to the visitors’ goal. However, it was all far from convincing stuff.
Therefore, when the runaway leaders went to Vicarage Road to get stuffed by a 3-0 scoreline, you could hardly argue that a defeat hadn’t been coming. While Watford’s amazing victory was the first defeat inflicted on Liverpool all season and brought to an end an incredible winning run, the Reds’ performance was pretty shocking for a team who had previously amassed 79 points from their previous 28 games.
Klopp has been fairly spiky in the ensuing press conferences and not just because he’s had to field questions on things like the coronavirus. The German knows that his team’s brilliant season is threatening to go off the rails and that a historic Premier League title success could end up being celebrated in a somewhat anticlimactic atmosphere, with the squad currently losing their mojo.
Liverpool Still 1/1000 to Win Premier League Title
The reality of the situation is that Liverpool are likely to be celebrating a Premier League title triumph in the next few weeks, with the Reds having a perfect fixture against Bournemouth where they can correct their defensive faults and also fill their scoring boots in front of a fervent home support. Let’s not forget that this team have won all fourteen matches at Anfield this season, scoring thirty-eight goals and conceding just eleven.
The bookies are still unprepared to consider the possibility that Jurgen Klopp’s side will produce the most almighty of slips and cede the title to a Manchester City who have publicly conceded defeat even if they can mathematically overhaul their north-west rivals by winning all their remaining fixtures and hoping that Liverpool embark on a miserable run.
Hopeful Manchester City supporters might be interested in the 66/1 about Pep Guardiola’s side reeling in Liverpool, although the bottom line is that the Citizens can only finish the campaign with a maximum 90 points from their thirty-eight games played. Liverpool have 79 as it stands and therefore just need twelve points to get over the line, with three likely to come against the Cherries.

Where Will Liverpool FC Win the Title?
That setback at Vicarage Road means that it will take a little longer than expected for Liverpool to finally land that hallowed trophy, while we can’t rule out a few more slip-ups from a squad who have simultaneously forgotten how to defend and also how to put the ball into the back of the net. However, the champagne is still very much on ice avoiding a monumental collapse.
Unfortunately for Liverpool supporters, the prospect of landing their first title for thirty years at Goodison Park on Monday 16 March is now unrealistic, with the Merseyside derby potentially serving to delay the process further should Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees conspire a victory against their arch-rivals and that would further damn the upcoming celebrations.
Following the derby, the Reds entertain Crystal Palace at Anfield before they take a trip to the Etihad Stadium and there’s the very real prospect that Liverpool could actually land a victory against the team that pipped them at the post last season as the teams raced to the line.
On the flip side, if Guardiola manages to engineer a victory, then Liverpool might have to wait as long as Sunday 12 April - a 7/2 chance with BetVictor - to finally lift the trophy, with Aston Villa arriving for a thankless fixture and that would be a weekend where the red half of Merseyside come out en masse to salute their heroes who have made dreams a reality.
Next Liverpool FC Manager Betting Now Available
It’s not clear as to when Jurgen Klopp will stand down as manager of Liverpool FC. It would seem pretty clear that the former Borussia Dortmund head coach will continue at the Merseyside club for at least one further season in an attempt to retain the Premier League crown and continue to establish the team as one of the greatest in the history of the English top flight.
However, the speculation is starting to build when it comes to the identity of the next man to take charge of the Liverpool FC first team and it’s little surprise to see Steven Gerrard among the favourites to replace Klopp. It would be a hugely popular appointment as far as the supporters are concerned, although it would also be tinged with worry that the club legend could potentially tarnish his reputation in the process.
While Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger left relatively poisoned chalices at Manchester United and Arsenal respectively, it’s fair to say that Klopp is sure to hand over a squad packed with further potential and Gerrard is currently a 5/2 chance with Paddy Power to take charge at his beloved Merseyside club, with the former England midfielder currently managing Glasgow Rangers.
It’s an easy connection to make, although club owners Fenway Sports Group will think with their heads rather than their hearts when it comes to making future appointments and Pep Lijnders is actually the favourite to take charge of Liverpool FC next. For the uninitiated, the Dutchman is already part of Klopp’s coaching team at Melwood and would surely jump at the chance to ensure continuity.
Xabi Alonso comes next in the betting, with the former Liverpool midfielder currently in charge of Real Sociedad B in the Segunda Division B and that is hardly the sort of position which would steel the Basque for the importance of managing the famous English club, while Julian Nagelsmann is probably a more viable contender at 10/1 considering his fine work at RB Leipzig.
