Liverpool Continue to Push For Top 4 Finish

Leicester (0) – (3) Liverpool

– C.Jones (33) (36), T. Alexander-Arnold (71)

King Power Stadium, Leicester

Liverpool’s revival after a mid-season crash is all but complete following a 0-3 away win vs Leicester. The Scousers are a point off Newcastle and Manchester United with three games remaining and look to book a top-four finish. With six wins on the trot, Liverpool are back in a good position to finish in the top four and rely on a slip-up from the aforementioned clubs.

A brace from Curtis Jones and a top-drawer free kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold was enough to see off a pathetic challenge from relegation-zoned Leicester, who currently lie 19th on the table. Mo Salah made history as well last night by becoming the fourth player in Premier League history to score an excess of ten goals while also providing at least ten assists in four different seasons. He joins an illustrious list of Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, and Eric Cantona.

Leicester on the other hand, stare relegation in the face with two games remaining in the league. They are to battle it out with Leeds, Everton, and Nottingham Forest, only separated by 4 points. Still, to play West Ham and Newcastle, Leicester will need to win this weekend and hope Everton fails to win either of their remaining games to survive the drop.

This penultimate matchday weekend may determine who wins the league, and also seal top-four finishes and who is to be relegated. Southampton has already been declared as good as relegated but it’s all to play for the other contenders. Man City has the chance to win the league with a win vs Chelsea and both Newcastle and Man United can secure top four with respective wins.

Erling Haaland who is poised to win the golden boot with 36 goals with Harry Kane 2nd with 27 goals. When all is done I think we can all agree that he should also be the player of the season as his contribution has been immense for Manchester City.
