We are at the midway mark in the Premier League and in the famous words of the WWE announcer Jim Ross “Business is about to pick up!”. This is the time that traditionally, we have enough data about all the teams to make a valid prediction about who is going to win the league.
The number one stat that comes to our aid is the Premier League table, with the tradition being that the table toppers at Christmas go on to win the Premier League but there are only two exceptions to that, both being Liverpool. Both those times they were beaten to the title by a team from Manchester.
Dejan Lovren believes Jürgen Klopp has assembled a Liverpool squad capable of winning the Premier League title and insists that they have learned their lesson from previous campaigns. It would certainly appear so, if you take a look at Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the campaign with 16 wins and 3 draws.
Their chances of winning the title are further boosted by the recent demise in the form of the team going head to head with them in this title race, Manchester City have now lost 3 out of the last 5 Premier League matches, allowing Spurs to take second place where they sit 6 points behind Liverpool. If you want take a chance you should now place your online betting tip for Liverpool.
The indicators all seems to be pointing towards the 28 year wait for a Premier League title finally coming to an end for the Afield faithful. Although it is still not quiet done yet. Many are predicting the litmus test for Liverpool’s title challenge will be the game at Etihad on 3rd January where a win against the Citizens will be the final nail in the coffin of City’s title challenge.
Sam Allardyce’s take on the situation is “Liverpool haven’t even lost a game yet. They’re going to have to lose three games and Man City are going to have to win three games to get past them now and I think that’s going to be a difficult task. Not impossible, but very difficult.”
If we are analyzing why Liverpool are going to win the Premier League, then it is important that we take a look at the most immediate team posing a title threat to them. Spurs are in great form at the moment, where they have won 5 out of 5 of their last 5 Premier League matches.
But things do not seem very rosy for Spurs as the inform Son will spearhead South Korea’s challenge at next month’s Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates which will hit their Premier League title challenge hard. Off the pitch, Mauricio Pochettino is being heavily tipped to fill the managerial shoes at Old Trafford, while Toby Alderweireld’s future also remains fuzzy.
Overall things are looking good for Liverpool’s title challenge and with all the pointers, pointing in Liverpool’s favor, it would seem that winning their first ever Premier League title is only a matter of time.
