SINGAPORE: On Jan 8, Liverpool was on top of the English Premier League and looking good for a second successive title. Yet, after Sunday’s (Mar 7) 1-0 loss to Fulham – its sixth home defeat in a row - the champions were sitting 22 points behind leaders Manchester City. In the previous two seasons, Liverpool lost a total of four league games but, incredibly the Reds, so dominant in winning the 2019 to 2020 title, lost the same amount in February alone. Head coach Jurgen Klopp admitted that the title is now out of his team’s reach thanks to the dip in its form and a resurgent City.
