Liverpool have clinched the 2019-2020 English Premier League title after only 31 match days. After missing out on the 2018-2019 title by only one point Klopp and Liverpool worked hard on taking the next step and win the EPL. The summer 2019 transfer window saw relative little activity as Liverpool worked on using and improving on what they had.
Klopp’s famous all over the pitch pressing 4-3-3 has looked better and more effective with a goalkeeper trying to play a sweeper role when possible. The central defence which due to injury has more often featured Joe Gomez – instead of Joel Matip – with Virgil van Dijk has played impressively in keeping the the opposition from even getting into Liverpool’s penalty area. Fabinho has been just as impressive a central or defensive midfielder allowing Henderson and Wijnaldum to press, pass and more importantly provide the movement to open up spaces for the fullbacks. The system has allowed the full backs Alexander-Arnold and Robertson to become one of the most effective combos in world football with impressive runs and assist stats. The front three have been a constant and played many minutes offering pace and finishing and all working hard to play their part in using and creating space. Firmino has assisted more often and Salah and Mane have been prolific.
As the pandemic interrupted season heads for its conclusion Liverpool have and are making history.
