The Reds are now sat in second place but are only behind Manchester City on goal difference with a game in hand. Because Liverpool is already out of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, they do not have as many games to play, giving them a major advantage to be fresher for the Premier League games. They have many talented, first-team players that are capable of starting and playing at all positions, and so they should be able to rotate their squad for most of their games. But this weekend showed that at the top two it is lesser heralded players who are essential to their title bids.

However, the chances of the West London team of returning to the Champions League next season is now looking bleak because of the keen contest with Arsenal and Man United.
