Liverpool’s Comeback

By Amelia Lipcsei

Finally, after a stunning 30 years without winning a Premier League title, Liverpool shocked the world with one of the greatest season’s a team has ever played during the 2019-2020 Premier League season. Earning a total of 99 points, 18 points above about the second place team, Manchester City, their outstanding performance, although somewhat expected as they had continuously placed in the top five during the past three seasons, left the entire soccer world in shock. After loyally waiting for more than a decade, Liverpool fans were overjoyed by their favorite team’s resilient comeback. Thousands of fans gathered outside of Anfield in June to celebrate this monumental and emotional victory, as shown here. Now, as the 2020-2021 Premier League season starts back up again, fans can only watch and hope that Liverpool has another admirable season. Unfortunately, with their recent loss of 7-2 against Aston Villa, Liverpool’s standings have dropped down to fifth place out of 20, putting them barely below Arsenal, Leicester City, Aston Villa, and Everton. However, Liverpool  still has an entire season ahead of them to catch back up in the rankings, so their future looks very bright.
