February will prove to be a make or break month for the Reds with a succession of important fixtures that may ultimately have an effect on a season which if one calls underachieved would sound like an under statement.
While in a matter of a few weeks, the Reds came from 8 points away from 4th place to 1 single point, one has to keep in mind that Man City are level with us on points with 2 games in hand while Villa are 1 point behind us with one game in hand. Make no mistake; the Reds will loose points in this run-up, but so will the other contenders.
February packs in 6 fixtures for the Reds. Everton (H), Arsenal (A), Unirea Urziceni (H), Man City (A), Unirea Urziceni (A), and Blackburn (H). Three home and three away games packed in the space of 22 days!
Now, dwelling deep into my emotions rather than making a game per game analysis, this is my prediction for these fixtures (please don’t place any bets!):
Liverpool vs. Everton 2-1
Arsenal vs. Liverpool 1-1
Liverpool vs. Unirea Urziceni 2-0
Man City vs. Liverpool 2-2
Unirea Urziceni vs. Liverpool 1-1
Liverpool vs. Blackburn 2-1
So, what are you predictions for February?
