UPDATED:

The game against Manchester United is another game down.

Some fans have now moved on from whether Liverpool will win the league, to pouring scorn on them breaking any previous records. This particular team have shown time and again just what they’re capable of.

But there seem to be five potential fixtures that the Reds are most likely to drop points in and ranked them accordingly on probability.

First is the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 23rd of February 2020; it’s an away game. This needs no other context other than the difficulty it presents as being a really good opponent away from home. It will be Wolves’ cup final, as with many others; the prospect of ending Reds’ unbeaten run. With a victory over Manchester City in recent memory driving Molyneux, Liverpool will have to show they are at their mentally monstrous best to ensure they remain on course for what many feels is now an inevitability.

Nigel Pearson has revolutionised Watford’s fortunes since his arrival at Vicarage Road, which brings us to the next game which will be on 29 February 2020 against Watford; also away. His first game against Liverpool posed Jürgen Klopp’s side plenty of questions before they eventually ran out 2-0 winners. Watford are strong, physical and robust. The clash comes at the end of a February run of games which will certainly offer more shape to how things will eventually play out.

Everton’s away game on 14th of March 2020, just three days after the second leg of the Champions League fixture against Atletico Madrid, will be another problematic one for Liverpool. The Reds travel to Goodison Park to renew hostilities with the Blues. Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be hell-bent on revenge following Reds’ two Anfield victories against their neighbours this season. Everton being wound up will not be enough alone to deny Klopp’s men, but with two 0-0 draws in the last two fixtures there is a chance that another halting could be on the cards. What it matters in the grand scheme of this season is a different story.

Fresh off the back of a well-deserved point against City on Saturday, Palace proved once again they have a knack of being extremely problematic for the top teams away from home. And they are going to do just that when they face the Reds at home on 21 March 2020. Even Klopp has found them to be troublesome at Anfield throughout his time. They are the last team to win in Premier League against Liverpool and have lost narrowly by a single goal in the past two clashes. They may be able to steal a point in between two massive games for the Reds.

And lastly, we have the away game to Manchester City on March 4, 2020. Even if the title is wrapped up as early as March, Pep Guardiola’s side will want to lay down a marker for next season that will make them believe they can come back and regain their crown. It’s up to the Reds to deny them and hopefully be on the cusp of their first league title in 30 years.
