Will Liverpool salvage anything from their miserable 2022/23 campaign?


It’s hard to believe that only eight months ago, Liverpool almost won everything. They took both domestic cups – the FA Cup and the League (Carabao) Cup – back to Anfield, finished second in the Premier League with just one point separating them from champions Manchester City and made it through to the final of the Champions League, only to be beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid despite being the better team overall.

This season, Jurgen Klopp’s men have limped out of both domestic cup competitions, sit in 9th position in the Premier League table with only 8 wins from their 19 outings and face a tough assignment in the next round of the Champions League against defending champions Real Madrid.

The chances of Liverpool securing for themselves a Champions League berth for 2023/24 are looking slim, at least as far as a top four finish in the Premier League is concerned. The Reds are still in with a chance of going all the way in the 2022/23 competition but having lost to the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion (3-0 and 3-1) and Brentford (3-1) in recent weeks, it’s hard to envisage them overcoming a Real Madrid side who are sitting second in the La Liga table.

Indeed there’s every possibility that the Reds will miss out on European football completely for next season, most leading bookmakers going 5/2 that they fail to achieve a top six finish at the end of the season. This would be a massive disappointment for a club used to dining at the top table of European football and it would likely lead to questions being asked about a manager who has thus far been pretty much untouchable.

There’s time yet for Liverpool to turn a corner and start their slow climb up the league table, however with Arsenal, Manchester City, Newcastle United and Manchester United starting to look nailed into the top-four positions this season, the best that Klopp’s men can realistically ask for next term is a place in the Europa League.
