So an amazing 16 game unbeaten run since Christmas ended with a controversial defeat to Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday.
With Brendan Rodger’s side top of the League after 11 straight wins, it looked as though the Title was within reach.
Tantalisingly so as with three games remaining and 5 points clear of Chelsea and Man City, it was within Liverpool’s grasp, theirs to win, one hand on the title after 24 long years.
Chelsea came to Liverpool and did a job on the home team, parking the bus with 10 men at the back, constant time-wasting and they plundered a two-goal win from fortress Anfield.
Yes, Liverpool were unlucky to lose and yes, they played into Mourinho’s hands as Chelsea sat deep and defended all afternoon.
But this was one of the first times this Season that Brendan Rodger’s team looked tired and devoid of attacking ideas.
Suarez, Coutinho, Sterling and poor old Stevie G were off the pace at times and it cost us dearly, let us hope not fatally.
Liverpool are still top of the Premier League on 80 points with two games to go. I am hoping that Roberto Martinez’s Everton will do a job on Man City this Saturday.
Even a draw would be enough for Liverpool to have their destiny in their own hands again.
We live in hope Liverpool Fans.
