Manchester City beating Leicester on Monday night all but ended Liverpool's title ambitions - maybe it's time to start planning for next season?
"Against Barcelona, Liverpool is also trying to overcome a 3-0 first-leg deficit without forward Robert Firmino, who has a muscle injury".
The Reds were down 3-0 following the Champions League semi-final first leg at Barcelona, as a Lionel Messi masterclass and a goal from former Liverpool star Luis Suarez seemingly doomed the Premier League contenders.
This is an unbelievable comeback by Liverpool, down their best player and facing almost impossible odds to keep their season alive.
Of course, the fact they were able to create those chances will give them confidence for the game; putting them away is the hard part! After last season's stunning capitulation at Roma, the future of manager Ernesto Valverde will undoubtedly be on very shaky ground after this collapse, despite his league and domestic cup accomplishments.
Rivaldo's opener, a fantastic free-kick, increased the size of the mountain Liverpool had to climb and they were still trailing at half-time.
EPL: What De Gea told Man United teammates after error against Chelsea
Whichever way they do it, that would mean they have had a decent campaign. "He needs to go on holiday and sort his contract out". That's the way to get the best out of David de Gea, and having the best David de Gea is a luxury few clubs could dream of.
There were a few fraught moments for Liverpool in the final moments as they aimed to see out the game but marshalled by the ultra-cool Van Dijk they saw off any threat.
"Celebrating the goal last week, people know the importance of scoring in a Champions League semi-final", Suarez added.
But before their second clash, Liverpool fans have attempted to put off their European rivals.
Both teams will meet for the second leg at Anfield on Wednesday, when Liverpool will need to overturn the three-goal first-leg defeat.
What it does mean is that unlikely heroes have the chance to etch their name into club folklore, by majorly contributing in Liverpool's attempt of reaching Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitano on 1 June.
"Before the game we knew that it would be hard but it was still possible of course".
