Liverpool have 10 Cup Finals to win the Premier League
This season is turning into a really long party for Liverpool fans. It’s come out of the blue, and we don’t know how to feel.
March 7th, 2014
Every weekend now feels like a celebration—that our team is playing the best football in the country, and that maybe, just maybe, we could win the Premier League.
Of course there’s a long way to go, and Brendan Rodgers’ side now have 10 crucial games in front of them to edge nearer the golden carrot that’s being dangled in front of Merseyside.
Starting with next week’s unpredictable trip to Manchester United, Liverpool need to call upon their experienced players to lead and guide the team through the final games of the season.
Whilst the Reds’ youngsters have flourished this season, the team possesses a good balance of experience and youth and the overall team’s resolve will surely be tested if they are to determine their own destiny.
Luckily for Rodgers, he has some key leaders in his team—from Captain Fantastic Steven Gerrard to two more international skippers Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger in defence. Add to that Glen Johnson and his wealth of experience, as well as Luis Suarez, who is playing a big part as a role model in the development of Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge around him.
Further into the squad, the likes of Kolo Toure have an important part to play in keeping Liverpool patient and level-headed, focused on winning game by game.
The pressure has been upped, but Liverpool are in arguably their best position to win the Premier League ever. They are capable of beating the big teams at home (Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City all still have to come to Anfield) and are finally getting their away form right with critical wins at Fulham and Southampton recently.
Rodgers will be looking for a maturity from his team to finish the season in the blistering form they have shown this year.
Hold on tight, Liverpool fans, this could be some ride yet.
