Liverpool’s resilience this season is truly impressive

Liverpool boosted their hopes of finishing in the top four of the English Premier League this season with a vital win away to Stoke City on Saturday.

In a dismal first half which saw Liverpool fail to get a shot on target, Jonathan Walters gave the Potters a shock lead just before the interval and away supporters must have feared the worst.

However, thumping finishes from Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in two minutes saw the Reds come from behind to win 2-1.

They are now 9 points ahead of the biggest threats to their top four ambitions, Arsenal and Man United, although both clubs have three games in hand on Jurgen Klopp’s men.

It’s going to be a nail-biting finish to the season for Liverpool fans, who are desperate to see their club return to the UEFA Champions League once again.

As this stat from Squawka shows though, performances like today are typical of this Klopp side and in a tight tail-end to the season, they possess a resilience that could prove crucial.

While it’s true the Reds have lost plenty of points from winning positions too, this tendency to come from behind and win points surely makes them favourites to finish in the top four come the end of the season.
