With 97 points in 38 matches (30 wins, seven draws and a single defeat), Liverpool was the team to beat this season. After a few lacklustre seasons, the lads from Anfield came out all guns blazing and made their presence felt. A major heartbreak was witnessed when Manchester City went past them during the dying moments of the Premier League. A single point ended up being the difference between victory and defeat. Makes one realise that mathematics can be quite brutal at times. Ironically, it has been a clear case of being ‘so near yet so far.’
The Premier League is one of the biggest hospitality events on earth. This time around, it just got bigger and better.
Fans were seen making their way to the Anfield Arena to witness their team’s winning run. But the action wasn’t just limited to the team’s exploits on the field. The Anfield Arena is also quite popular because of the Liverpool hospitality packages it offers.
Despite finishing second, it can be said that the 2018-19 Premier league season turned out to be a roaring success of Liverpool.
They will start the 2019-20 season as favourites. Here’s why:
- Player development has been a priority
A coach is just as good as the team. Jürgen Klopp knows this. He has been the force behind Liverpool’s success this season. The likes of Sadio Mane and Virgil Van Dijk took the Premier League by storm and ended up impressing everybody with their on-field exploits. Take an example of Van Dijk. The Dutchman was brought into the side from Southampton. He was always believed to be the ‘next big thing’ in English football. Klopp was well aware of the talent this lad possessed. Thanks to Klopp, Van Dijk is now one of the best defenders in English football at present. He was crowned the PFA Player of the Year and the Premier League Player of the Season. He is expected to take his rich vein of form a notch higher during the upcoming season.
- The recruitments have been spot on
Manchester United fans would agree that having good players in the ranks doesn’t always guarantee success. Having a bunch of talented players is one thing, while motivating them to play as a single cohesive unit is another. As far as Klopp is concerned, he always had a blueprint in mind. He knew which of the players would bring a sense of balance into the team. The club’s defensive lines were bolstered after Virgil Van Djik arrived at Anfield. Xherdan Shaqiri was roped in from Stoke City because of his excellent dribbling ability and pace. Fabinho left Monaco in order to join Liverpool. He proved to be an excellent addition. He was the club’s utility player who played as a defensive midfielder. Both these players ended up seizing several key moments during the course of the Premier League. Xherdan Shaqiri’s goal against Manchester United was one such key moment.
- A renewed focus on the results
As stated earlier, having a good team is not enough. If you want to win a championship, then you need to win matches. Now, in order to win matches, you need to focus on results. Klopp, with all his might, motivated his troops to go out there and win matches. He wanted them to throw all caution to the winds and that is exactly what they did.
All in all, it was a season to remember for The Reds. They couldn’t succeed in getting their hands on the Premier League crown, but their spirited run in the 2018-19 Premier League season will certainly give them a lot of confidence going forward. All of the odds are stacked in their favour this time around. They certainly have the firepower to win the title in 2019-20.
It goes without saying that in terms of the football actions as well as hospitality services, 2019-2020 season would be no less spectacular than its predecessor.
The Reds will start the season as title favourites. If you happen to be an ardent Liverpool fan, then it’s time to show your support while sitting in the stadium. You can choose from a wide range of Liverpool hospitality packages as per your convenience. Get ready to have the time of your life.
