Present time is the best opportunity for Liverpool to win the Premier League.
In the year 2008/09, Liverpool performed really well and till March 2nd, it has registered 10 wins in 11 games that it had played. Winning the 10 games, the team has picked up 31 points from the possible 33 points. At the same time, they defeated Manchester United with the score 4-1 at the Old Trafford and that too after falling 1-0 behind at the start of the game.
That United still won the league by four points and this shows how much they were more capable than of Reds before that run-in. Alex Ferguson was after total of 18 league trophies of Liverpool. In 2009, the team has 16.
Back by four points, but it could have been 40 as well. One more season with no league trophy is returning to Merseyside. Yossi Benayoun, Xabi Alonso, Pepe Reina, Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia, Robbie Keane, Jamie Carragher, Fernando Torres and Javier Mascherano in the team, however, that was as near as they would get.
He had done this before and it has been so often, Ferguson rallied the troops. At the Old Trafford, after the 4-1 reversal, the United went on to claim their next seven games in a row. They secured title 17 with a 0-0 draw at home. Liverpool went closer in the year 2013/14. The Brendan Rodgers seemed to be capable of delivering the result what Rafa Benitez could not at that time, finishing a drought lasted since 1990.
That all came crashing down with a home loss to Chelsea, Jose Mourinho and a damaging 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace. The city concluded winning the league by two points. All players of Liverpool, including Yossi Benayoun are in good form at the present time. This also boosts the hopes.
