For a team that won the English Premier League title last season, many would have been expecting Liverpool to start this current campaign on a high and also compete for the title this season as well, but just like not everything that's expected usually happens, it did not turn out that way. The Reds started the season with a thrilling 4-3 win against Leeds United at Anfield and their fans thought that the club was continuing from where they stopped last season.
However, after a couple of games into the season, they started showing signs of lackluster performances and started to lag. They suffered a couple of losses and drew games they were expected to win comfortably. The major reason for their dip in form has been due to the many injured a lot of their players have had to suffer or deal with this season, including captain Virgil van Dijk.
