Earned a championship chance with difficulty
Bayern flirt Mané redeems Liverpool FC

Liverpool FC averts the next bitter setback in the English football championship with a tour de force and remains on the heels of leaders Manchester City. Against Aston Villa, Jürgen Klopp’s team turns the game out of nowhere.

Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC are keeping the tension high in the English football championship and can continue to hope for the title. Second in the Premier League, they won 2-1 (1-1) against Aston Villa FC, coached by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, but were also a little lucky, putting Manchester City under pressure.

In the table, Klopp and his team are now level on points behind the leader. The league leaders coached by Pep Guardiola also have 86 points, the better goal difference and one game less. The champions play at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday and can then extend the lead back to three points.

Liverpool struggled in Birmingham. Three days after the draw with Tottenham Hotspur, Klopp’s side conceded a goal from Douglas Luiz in the third minute when goalkeeper Alisson failed to save the ball. Although Liverpool quickly equalized through former Schalke player Joel Matip (6th), they created few scoring chances. In addition, the Reds had to replace the ailing Fabinho after half an hour.

Even after the change, the guest had problems at Villa Park. But Sadio Mané, who is said to be being courted by FC Bayern, scored his 15th goal of the season to make it 2-1 against the long-equal hosts. The goal came almost out of nowhere at a time when the game was uneventfully rippling along. However, the game of the favorites from Liverpool did not become more sovereign due to the lead. The Reds now have two league games against FC Southampton and Wolverhampton to overtake Man City.

On Saturday (5.45 p.m.) Klopp and his team could win their second title of the season in the FA Cup final against Chelsea after the League Cup. The last and most important is on May 28 in Paris in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
