Manchester City stays on top of the latest English Premier League (EPL) 2021-2022 standings as of writing. Pep Guardiola’s men have a commanding 20-3-1 win-draw-loss record, good for 63 points. A back-to-back EPL championship run is imminent, given the lead they had. However, City should not let their Big Six rivals catch them off-guard, especially Liverpool.
The Singapore Pools odds for Liverpool winning the Premier League right now is 4.50, the closest to Man City with 1.02. Since January, the Reds won four of their last five matches while drawing the other game, the same as Man City. The Anfield-based booters are steadily going for the driver seat. They are also seven and 13-point cleared against current third and fourth placers Chelsea and West Ham United.
With more than 10 fixtures to play, the Reds have the greatest chances to complete their mission – reclaim the crown, which they last won in the 2019-2020 season, and twentieth overall – considering the following factors:
Klopp Wants More Trophies in His Collection
Before the 2020-2021 season, Liverpool was the reigning EPL champion, UEFA Super Cup winner, and 2019 FIFA Club World Cup titlist. The reason behind it is Jurgen Klopp, who brought back the squad’s winning tradition.
However, Klopp and Liverpool went empty-handed last season. At worst, they failed to defend the EPL trophy by placing third behind eventual champion Man City and first runner-up Manchester United.
Winning 2021/22 EPL is Klopp’s main priority to relieve the stress and pressure from Liverpool. Per Sports Illustrated, he would most likely not leave the team “high and dry” as the German-born tactician wants those coveted trophies. Such should be his first step to keep the fans at high morale.
Mane Will Redeem Himself
Sadio Mane struggled to find his offensive groove in the past two months. However, supporters should not stop believing in the Senegalese footballer, given his vital role for the Reds through the years.
Not to mention, Mane is in the EPL’s top 10 goalscorer list despite the trouble he experiences. Currently, he ranks sixth with eight goals, tied with seven players.
All players undergo ups and downs in their careers. Besides, Mane led Senegal to the country’s first-ever Africa Cup of Nations crown by beating Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and Egypt in the finals. Fans can hope that this feat could propel the 29-year-old Bambali, Sédhiou native, back to his fearsome form.
Salah is Phenomenal in Offence
Mohamed Salah is EPL’s best scoring machine as of the moment with 16 goals. He also leads everyone in the number of shots on target (41) and shots taken (85).
The Egyptian wonder is impressive all-tournament long. Salah is a threat among any opposition with his terrific physical arsenal and skill set. His excellent footwork paired with speed and mobility gives himself and his teammates scoring chances.
Salah can also play almost everywhere in front. He can be Liverpool’s main striker, right-winger, or attacking midfielder. Regardless, his presence in the pitch is a tough test their foe should answer. Thus, Salah’s consistency in attacking is essential to Liverpool’s quest for EPL supremacy.
The EPL 2021/22 is far from done. Man City should remain calm until the final stretch, or else the waxing-hot Liverpool will steal the spotlight from them. Klopp is eager, Mane will come back stronger, and Salah has the offence to inspire the team. With these three coming together at the right time, the Reds can turn the tables.
With football’s unpredictability, bettors should not only rely on Singapore Pools football odds but also check on the latest updates about the teams, head-to-head match-ups, statistical leaders, and more to increase your winning chances. Besides, it would help if you look for an online casino with a reliable sportsbook, like CMDBet.
