Liverpool’s collapse in the 2022-23 season so far has been hard to fathom.
Last season Jurgen Klopp’s side were a couple of fine margins off becoming the first side in the history of English football to complete a quadruple. They went toe-to-toe against Pep Guardiola’s Man City in the title race, falling just short with a brilliant tally of 92 points.
They’ve been almost unrecognisable this season. They were poor prior to the World Cup but have plumbed new depths since the campaign resumed, exiting the League Cup and FA Cup and looking almost certain to finish outside the Champions League qualification places in the league.
On current form, they look unlikely to even qualify for any European competition. Saturday’s shocking 3-0 defeat to Wolves was arguably their worst result yet.
