Can Liverpool Complete the Quadruple?

Can Liverpool Complete the Quadruple?

Liverpool have been one of the world's outstanding footballing clubs over the past five years, and have won both the Premier League and Champions League during that time, as well as reaching another Champions League final which they lost to Real Madrid in 2018.

This season Liverpool have already accumulated 73 points from 31 games, losing only twice in the league. Recent additions of Konate (Summer 2021 from Leipzig) and Luis Diaz (January 2022 from Porto), have vastly improved their squad depth, and has meant that the club are able to compete better across more competitions than they were previously able to.

This has been evident in the fact that Liverpool have already won the first major domestic trophy, beating Chelsea in the final of the League Cup, and have also reached the final of the FA Cup, where they will face Thomas Tuchels side once again.

Additionally, the Reds have reached the Semi-finals of the Champions League and are just one point behind league-leaders, Manchester City, in the Premier League. If this current Liverpool side is able to complete this unprecedented quadruple, they would be remembered in the history books as one of the most successful teams in footballing history. So can Jurgen Klopp's men be the first to achieve this feat?

FA Cup

Liverpool haven't won the FA Cup for 16 years and would move level with Chelsea on eight titles if they were able to beat the Blues in the final.

This season Liverpool have seen off Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester City, to reach their second domestic final of the season.

Just like in the League Cup Final, the Reds face Chelsea and go into the game as favourites. Chelsea have a great record in the FA Cup and are the competition's third-most successful team ever, with eight titles.

Their first-half performance at Wembley against Manchester City in the semi-finals displayed that the side from Merseyside are certainly taking the competition seriously this year, as they look to complete the quadruple.

Champions League

Liverpool have had yet another outstanding European campaign this year, winning six out of six games in the Group Stages, and since then knocking out Inter Milan and Benfica in recent stages.

They face the Spanish side Villarreal in the Champions League Semi-finals in just over a week's time, and again, even though they face the current Europa League Champions and a team who just knocked out Bayern Munich, the Reds go into the tie as strong favourites.

Though Liverpool's run to the semis has been somewhat straightforward, in the fact that they haven't faced an elite European team, such as the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or PSG along the way, however, they have brushed past Portuguese giants Benfica and current Italian champions Inter Milan with ease.

They face Villarreal, a side whose manager, Unai Emery, has an exceptional European record, reaching five European finals and winning four of them. Regardless of Emery’s European excellence, Liverpool are expected to progress to the final, where they would face either Manchester City or Real Madrid, both games are tough fixtures, and both have meaning, as Liverpool lost the 2018 final to Real, and have been fierce competitors with City for several years.

Premier League

In order to win their second Premier League title, Liverpool must continue their remarkable domestic form and hope that Manchester City drops points.

Liverpool have lost once in their past 24 games, that being a home loss to Inter Milan in the Champions League, a result with no meaning as the Reds progressed on aggregate regardless.

Liverpool's last Premier League loss came in 2021, as they lost to Leicester City in December. Manchester City on the other hand have stumbled a bit of late, as they have failed to win in three of their past six league games.

If City were to make one more mistake, then Liverpool would have a massive advantage in the race for the title, though from analysing the fixture list, one may argue that City have a more favourable run-in, as Liverpool must play their two rivals, Everton and Manchester United, as well as an improved Tottenham at home.

Will They Complete the Quadruple?

Overall Liverpool are in a fantastic position in all three of their remaining competitions, and whether they are able to complete the treble or not, shouldn’t cloud over the fact that this current side is one of their best teams ever.

On paper, Liverpool will likely finish the season with a treble, and not their desired quadruple, on the basis of their FA Cup semi-final with City, they will win the Champions League as well as the FA Cup to go with their League Cup but will not topple Guardiola’s men in the Premier League.
