Negative numbers chase Liverpool after the City four


 Negative numbers chase Liverpool after the City four

Last season, the English Premier League title holder, Liverpool, suffered a heavy blow after losing to Manchester City, 1-0, in the match that was held on the floor of "Anfield", within the accounts of the 23rd week of Premier League competitions.

Liverpool stopped its score at 40 points, so the "Reds" were just around the corner from losing the Premier League title to Manchester City, who tops the standings by 50 points, in addition to City having a postponed match against Everton.

Liverpool, after losing by four, was exposed to a number of negative numbers, which we will review in the following lines:

Defeat at Anfield:

After Anfield was a fortress for Liverpool, the "Reds" were facing one defeat after the other at home, with Jurgen Klopp's men suffering their third consecutive loss since September 1963.

Liverpool are also the first team to lose three consecutive games the following season after winning the Premier League title since Chelsea did so in March 1956.

The Lever, in the last five matches at home, has drawn two games against West Brom and then Manchester United, and lost in three consecutive games against Burnley, Brighton and Manchester City.

Back in points:

After 23 games in the current season, Liverpool have 40 points in their balance, so this rate is lower than it was at the same stage of last season, when the Reds' balance was 67 points.

After 23 games, Liverpool won on 11 occasions only, compared to seven draws and five defeats, in an indication of the decline in the team's numbers, unlike last season, after winning 32 games, drawing in three matches and losing the same.

Absent event:

After an absence of 18 years, specifically in 2003, Manchester City succeeded in winning on the ground of "Anfield", and this victory is the first in favor of Spaniard Pep Guardiola at Liverpool Stadium since he assumed the technical leadership of Man City.
