Four reasons Liverpool won’t win the title

It’s been a fantastic season so far for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, with the Reds currently in third place and nine points behind leaders Chelsea. The ex-Dortmund boss is looking to guide Liverpool to their first league triumph in 27 years.

Over the last couple of seasons, the Reds have been in and out of the title race, with their closest pursuit coming in the 2008/09 campaign – when Rafa Benitez lost the title fight to Manchester United. The most painful effort, meanwhile, came in 2014, when a Steven Gerard slip in the 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield saw Liverpool surrender a title they were in pole position to claim.

This term, Liverpool and Klopp seem like a perfect match, as the Reds have been in scintillating form -blowing teams away with the same brand of football that made the ex-Mainz boss gain world recognition during his time at Dortmund.

After those two close attempts, however, we take a look at why the Reds may miss out on the title again this season.
