Liverpool FC is about to contest another FA Cup, playing against Chelsea FC this Saturday, and things are looking up for the Reds. After Chelsea reported several injuries, Liverpool is looking in a particularly strong position to press on and take the title, as they have done many times before.
The FA Cup final is much like roulette with high limits where the rules are fixed and while there is a chance factor, being smart in your gameplay would usually yield better results. But, what makes Liverpool’s bid for the FA Cup finals so strong in the first place?
Consistently Good Performance
Look at it any which way you will, and you will reach the same conclusion – Liverpool FC is incredibly capable of delivering on some of the most worthwhile experiences and performances out there. The club has been going through Premier League as the #2 Seed and while Manchester City still holds a slight advantage Liverpool has a very good chance to contest the Premier League title as well as the FA Cup finals on Saturday.
But why is this the case? Liverpool has been thriving under the management of Jurgen Klopp who has no doubt been given a generous purse to tinker around with and buy some of the best and most talented soccer players in the UK and beyond. This has not been all of the club’s success, as the team has learned to work well together and play around with its weak links. This has enabled it to lose fewer games in the 2021/2022 season and has made the overall pace of play dynamic, but not at the expense of exposing the team’s defences too much.
Liverpool has been simply consistent in the way it delivers on wins or fends off a tougher team. And yet, there are a few “tougher” teams. The upcoming bout with Chelsea will indeed prove to be one of the most exciting things to watch on your TV sets this weekend, especially if you are a huge soccer fan.
But Liverpool is not very likely to stop there. For the club, it will be equally important to use its good track record and secure more than just the short-term success of the FA Cup. The Premier League is really where the prize is at as Manchester City is a team that has been hard to dethrone from the premier spot. However, Liverpool has a lot of hard work to do before it can get there.
Can Liverpool Grab 2021/2022 Premier League?
This will partly depend on how the team does this Saturday. On the one hand, Liverpool FC has all the reasons to be gunning for both the FA Cup and Premier League titles, but there are other factors to consider as well. For example, Manchester City may have more losses than Liverpool, but the bottom line is that City has played five wins in their past five games.
Liverpool drew a single game, which is not much to go on but still an important factor to consider. Plus, facing Chelsea with the stakes that high will surely have its toll on Liverpool which will need to play toe-to-toe with the Blues for the FA cup and then face Southampton next Tuesday with barely enough time to recover. The good news is that Liverpool will have somewhat easier games ahead of schedule so if it pulls through successful on Saturday, this should give it all the fighting spirit it needs to contest the Premier League.
Of course, part of Liverpool’s success will depend on how far Manchester City makes it. If they continue to maintain their healthy lead, then the title may just slip between Liverpool’s fingers like it has done so many times in the past. However, fans and analysts are optimistic about the club’s real chances of securing several trophies this year and we will be tuning in to see if this would indeed be the case.
