Where do Liverpool go from here?

Another round of fixtures has passed and more questions are being asked of Liverpool and where they go from here.

The Reds followed up their disappointing 4-1 home defeat to Manchester City with another defeat. That defeat came away from home against a Leicester City side who are flying under former Red’s boss Brendan Rodgers.

Despite going ahead in the game thanks to some magic by Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah, the Reds saw victory slip through their fingers. Three goals in seven minutes from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes saw the Foxes win 3-1

That sees Liverpool lose three straight league games for the first time since 2014, ironically with Brendan Rodgers in charge.

In his post-match interview, Jurgen Klopp conceded that Liverpool’s title challenge was over. He admitted: “Yes. I don’t think we can close the gap.” when asked if his side were still in the race.

What now for Liverpool?

Those recent defeats have seen Liverpool fall to 6th place in the Premier League and 13 points behind City. However, Pep’s side still have a game in hand which could potentially increase that gap to 16 points.

With the title out of sight, the aim for Liverpool should be to finish in the highest possible position. That position is second place which is currently being occupied by rivals Manchester United. The gap between Jurgen Klopp’s men and United currently stands at six points with both sides playing 24 games.

The short term goal now will be to get players back from injury and finally have some stability in this team. The return of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Diogo Jota will be huge for this team going forward.

A silver lining for the club may be that form of the clubs around them is not always consistent. For example, Manchester United have only taken six points from their last five games. Form like this will allow Liverpool to close the gap if they can find some form themselves.

Going into the final 14 games the demand from fans will be to finish as high as possible and regroup for next season to mount a fresh challenge.
