Premier League: Title winners taking one step back?

Liverpool played their 4th match of the season against Aston Villa. Their performance didn’t look like that of defending champions instead they looked like a mid-table team. They lost 7-2 against Aston Villa and Villa’s new summer signing Ollie Watkins managed to score a hat-trick within the first 40 minutes of the game starting. Liverpool had not conceded 7 goals against any team since April 1963 where they lost 7-2 against Tottenham Hotspur.

The defending champions have not continued their spectacular performance from last season, in their first 3 games of the 2020/21 season they faced off against, newly promoted Leeds United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all three teams gave Liverpool a run for their money.

The big question this year is, will Liverpool successfully defend their title? We predict that Liverpool won’t be the team to win the Premier League this year and a team that no-one gave a chance to will win the league.

Liverpool’s next fixture is scheduled to be against Everton. The Blues are currently the inform team within the Premier League, beating the likes of Tottenham and Crystal Palace. This fixture will be hard for both teams, Liverpool on the back of a 7-2 loss and Everton facing the defending champions who will surely want to put in a champions performance against their nearest neighbours.

The only saving grace for Liverpool is their main competition last season, Manchester City lost points against Leeds United in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road. Liverpool fans believe the one major draw back of their 7-2 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa is that their No1 Goalkeeper, Alisson, got injured ahead of the clash against Villa, leaving him sidelined. Adrian was made to step up and take his the No1 position but needless to say… That didn’t go well.
