The Reds came so close in 2014
The Reds have not been at the top of the Premier League since 5th May 2014, the year they almost won it under Brendan Rodgers but for the famous slip by fans favourite and then captain Steven Gerrard. They were pipped to the post and finished 2-points behind Manchester City after the final game of the season.
Considering the Reds' performances over the last few years, 2nd place wasn't a bad result but nevertheless it was still disappointing after coming so close.
26 year drought
It is under no dispute that Liverpool does have a rich history in #Football, all of their success coming in the 1970's and 80's but the Reds have failed to win the League for the last 26-years, leaving room for Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United to win it a record 20 times.
The charismatic German coach, Jurgen Klopp is certainly on the right track to bring some long-awaited domestic success back to Anfield and he admitted, when he told the club's official website, that his players carry the clubs history on their shoulders but has a strong desire for them to create their own success in the near future. "It's a really good moment and I know that everybody compares with the past, especially at Liverpool." he said. "Three years ago, 10, five, 25 years ago - but this team is new, we are new. Our story started a few months ago so you cannot compare us with anyone else." He went on to state that they cannot carry the "history on our backs, we should feel free for creating something in the near future."
Liverpool looking strong
Although only 11 games have passed in the Premier League this season, Liverpool is looking like strong contenders for the title. Already this season they have beaten both Arsenal and Chelsea in emphatic wins away from home. They easily saw off the likes of current Champions Leicester City with a 5-1 victory. The only real slip up so far was a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Premier League newcomers Burnley, despite having the majority of possession and a high number of attempts on goal.
Only time will tell how much effect Jurgen Klopp will have on the club and whether he can keep the momentum going until the end of the season. #JurgenKlopp
