How Liverpool can win the quadruple

As long as it remains possible for Liverpool to win an unprecedented quadruple, their fans will continue to dream as big as possible.

Having already won the Carabao Cup this year, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are on the march for further success in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

They’re well placed in all three competitions, but what do they need to do to finish the campaign on a historic high?

Liverpool secured a 2-2 draw in the recent clash with Manchester City, meaning the current champions hold a slender one-point advantage as we approach the end of the season.

From now, it’s about which side can avoid blips and finish the campaign in stronger form. Still to come for the Reds are derbies with Manchester United and Everton and a clash with top-four chasers Tottenham, but they remain favourites to win all of those fixtures.

You could argue Liverpool are better placed to win the Champions League than the Premier League.

Having eased past Benfica in the quarter-finals, the Reds now have a semi-final tie with surprise package Villarreal. Should they win that, they’ll play in Paris’ final against either Real Madrid or Manchester City.

It’s been a while since Liverpool last won the FA Cup. That was back in 2006, when Steven Gerrard carried the Reds to a dramatic victory over West Ham.

Their often busy schedule and Jurgen Klopp’s squad rotation mean Liverpool don’t always go deep in the competition. But their recent 3-2 semi-final victory over Manchester City has set up a first final for the German in England’s historic cup competition.

They’ll face Chelsea, who beat Crystal Palace in the other semi-final, at Wembley.

Liverpool have, of course, already won the first bit of silverware up for grabs in the English Football League season.

The Reds navigated a route to the final that included meetings with Leicester and Arsenal to set up a final meeting with Chelsea.

An enthralling game ended goalless and went to penalties, where Liverpool ultimately came out on top to claim the trophy.
