The Reds took on Bournemouth on Saturday and thoroughly swept them aside.

Callum Wilson controversially put the hosts ahead before Mo Salah and Sadio Mane restored the normal order with two well taken goals. The game finished 2-1 to Jürgen Klopp.

The following day saw the Manchester Derby. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thoroughly outclassed and outhought his Spanish opposite number, leading United to a 2-0 win in the big game.

Liverpool are now two wins from the title thanks to the Manchester United win.

If Manchester City beat Arsenal on Wednesday and Burnley on Saturday then The Reds can secure the title with a win over Crystal Palace (provided they win the Merseyside Derby first).

Liverpool fans have reacted to the Manchester United win, it’s safe to say they’re pleased.

Leanne Prescott pointed out that Palace is the game now but that could be brought forward if Ederson maintains his error prone form.

This supporter pointed out that even if we were forced to win it behind closed doors then there would still be a mass of people outside anyway.

 

And one of those people would be busy singing Oh Campione.

One Kopite joked that City only lost so that we don’t win it at The Etihad.

But this City fan realised they’ll be the first team to give us a guard of honour.

But most importantly, after all these years, it’s there…right in front of us.
