Three reasons why Liverpool might win the title match

The Reds have a lot to cheer about going into the final stretch, according to our analysis of three factors that could have a significant impact on the winner.

The first encouraging development for Liverpool is that they may seize control of the title race right out of the international break.

The Reds will be able to watch Man City meet Arsenal later in the day knowing that a win or a draw for the hosts puts them in the lead with nine games remaining if they do their job and defeat Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool’s opponents have scored the fewest points per game out of the three teams that remain to be played.

In theory, that should mean Jurgen Klopp‘s players find it simpler to pick up points in this most crucial stage of the campaign.

Naturally, demonstrating your worth as a top football club is just as important during this time of year as handling pressure.

Therefore, it’s interesting to look at how the three managers have performed in previous Premier League run-ins.

Arsenal has rarely finished well in Mikel Arteta’s four seasons in charge, averaging just 16.5 points out of a possible 30 in the last ten games.

It should come as no surprise that Guardiola has performed significantly better, averaging 23.5 points over the same four seasons and winning three Premier League titles

It should come as no surprise that Guardiola has performed significantly better, averaging 23.5 points over the same four seasons and winning three Premier League titles.

Nevertheless, Klopp has the best record, averaging 24 points and recording the highest total of any of the three managers (26) twice.

Liverpool has a decent opportunity if the German manages to oversee another successful finish, as he has even in forgettable years like 2020–21 and 2022–23.

Liverpool would soon enjoy some benefit if there was any positive to missing out on Champions League qualification the previous year.

While there are undoubtedly difficult games in European competition, there is also greater room for rotation in the Europa League between Premier League matches.

And as they advance into the later stages of the significantly more difficult Champions League, neither Arsenal nor City will have that luxury.

The Gunners will be distracted by a two-leg quarterfinal matchup with Bayern Munich, while City will take on Real Madrid in an equally difficult matchup.

If both teams advance, their reward will be to play each other in an all-English semifinal that won’t do much to help their chances of winning the championship.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is a clear favorite in the Europa League and will aim to prove as much by winning their next matchup against Atalanta and then a probable semifinal matchup against either Marseille or Benfica.
