Last campaign, Liverpool were just one point off winning the Premier League title for a second time in three seasons, but for Manchester City’s incredible comeback win against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
Could their near-miss make Liverpool more determined to win the Premier League once again? After all, the last time they missed out to Manchester City back in a close battle back in 2018/19, Jurgen Klopp’s men went on to cruise to their first Premier League title with 99 points from 38 matches the following campaign.
Liverpool managed to win their first FA Cup since 2006 last season when they beat Chelsea on penalties in the final following an entertaining 0-0 draw. The Anfield club had a fairly straightforward run to the semi-finals, beating Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich City and Nottingham Forest before defeating Man City 3-2 at Wembley in the semi-finals.
