Posted by

Seven games remaining (a potential eight if the Reds can manage to successfully navigate a path past Villarreal in the Champions League) and Liverpool have so much left to play for.

With Manchester City not set to face Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United until later in the evening, Jurgen Klopp’s men could put the league leaders under some serious pressure if they secure the lion’s share of the points at St. James’ Park.
