Let's talk about Liverpool FC, who lead the league with 48 points having an advantage of total 4 points over the 2nd placed Manchester City. They have reached Christmas unbeaten after 18 matchdays.

The best part about the team is that they play attacking football every single minute of the game and much of the credit should go to Jurgen Klopp. They look like a club built to win the Premier League and their first trophy in the Jurgen Klopp Era. They need to concentrate and pick up points against the smaller clubs.

The thing that is to be noted though, is that this is not the first time they are the prime contenders. They were one of the favourites last season too, but couldn't topple Manchester City from the top. They have taken a 4 point lead this season and will hope to continue the season in similar fashion.

They face Arsenal in the weekend and they must have the confidence that they can beat them. If they win some of their next games, they could be on their way to make the gap between them and the rest of the Premier League much more wider. Obviously, that would be only possible, should Manchester City slip up again. They need to focus every game and keep up the form on both the sides of the field. They need to make their front three(Salah, Mane and Firmino) do the talking by feeding them most of the balls in the opposition areas

Liverpool have not won the Premier League since 1990. They have been craving for the Premier League in the past decades after messing up their opportunity many times in the past years. So it would be interesting if Klopp can finally bring the title to Anfield.
