Liverpool will need to step things up a level after failing to secure all three points against Leicester City last time out, as they’ve offered Manchester City a glimmer of hope in the race for the title.
The Reds still find themselves sitting pretty at the top of the table but things could all change in the blink of an eye, with Pep Guardiola’s side set to face Arsenal later on today at the Etihad.
Indeed, February could turn out to be a nightmare month for the Merseyside club, especially if they end up dropping points along the way, as Manchester City will be constantly piling on the pressure.
Therefore, here is the nightmare February for Liverpool…
DROP VITAL POINTS
Liverpool currently have a healthy lead at the top of the Premier League table but things could change in the blink of an eye as the Citizens have the chance to put pressure on Liverpool’s result tomorrow night by winning today.
Of course, the Reds have a rather easy schedule other than a trip to Old Trafford, but even the slightest of slip-ups could prove costly at this stage in their season.
So, supporters may be in for a month to forget with a busy schedule possibly hampering the Reds’ title chances.
SUFFER DEFEAT AT OLD TRAFFORD
A trip to Old Trafford is always a massive game for everyone involved at Liverpool Football Club, but the race for the title adds a little bit more value to the fixture.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would love nothing more than to ruin their bitter rivals’ title chances, as well as boosting their own quest for a top four spot, so the clash on the 24th is of huge importance for both teams.
The worst possible outcome would be for Liverpool to walk away from Manchester without any points. Indeed, losing to bitter rivals Manchester United is bad enough, but knowing that Manchester City are within touching distance of closing the gap would make it even worse if they manage to enjoy a positive run themselves.
