Look how nice the fixtures are setting up for Liverpool in the upcoming weeks:

Tough game tomorrow but at least it comes with the maximum days off.

FA Cup game against the worst remaining side on Sunday so the 1st team gets 6 days off before they play the Hammers on Wednesday. Game four days later against Southampton before two full weeks off.

Liverpool isn't the best off the break. But they get to play bottom of the table Norwich as a tune-up before going to play at Atletico in the CL.

The three EPL games before the replay are against West Ham, Watford and Bournmouth. Not exactly murderer's row. I think Atletico is going to have their hands full.

it's too bad the FA cup tie will kick off same time as UCMBB tip in Hartford - does ESPN+ offer replays? I am not sure that I have tried that yet

The replay will be available on ESPN+. They have an English FA Cup selection on the "Leagues" line.

I thought Wolves were going to hang on for a point, then I thought they were going to tie it up after LIV went ahead. Very good game. An amazing save by Alisson and a couple poor attempts at finishing. Wolves had the best chance to win a game against this juggernaut than any side in a long time.

I willing to say that I think Liverpool will win the EPL this season.

Great day for me! Liverpool my favorite team since I got my first soccer shirt in 1998 won and Pulisic was big in the victory. Klopp was such a great hire! Go Reds! YNWA!

Yeah that Pulisic is never going to make it at Chelsea.
As bad as the defending was, few players in this WORLD would still have the poise and burst to score that goal.

It was a good week for US soccer players. While his overall body of work is somewhat limited Dortmund seems to have seen enough to want Gio to stay around for a 'long time.

He places the ball in the goal. His goal scoring has been kind of a surprise, he wasn’t this prolific in the Bundesliga. Maybe EPL defending isn’t all that.

Or until they can get 80M Euro for him.

I have to give Dortmund credit though, they churn out a lot of talent and are able to turn over their emerging young stars for a lot of cash without missing a beat.

While it was tough to watch, I'm hoping this pasting delivers the message to Liverpool that the status quo is not good enough for next year. The rest of the league is on to them, they need to evolve. I think they played better last season. This year City regressed and Liverpool caught more breaks. I wouldn't mind letting Salah go and using the cash on some fresh blood because I don't think their kids will be ready to fulfill more than a squad role next season.

They are abysmal right now. When they went down 1-0 to City, I assumed the game was over. No faith in their ability to score. I don't like Henderson playing on the D. It's not that he's bad there, I just feel like they're missing some of his field stretching passes. I'm also shocked when Origi gets trotted out. He brings absolutely nothing and should have been sold in January. For the life of me I can't figure out why Minamino is being kicked down when the team is sorely in need of a boost. I also think it's time for a real striker. I know that Firmino brings skills and a different style, but they need someone who scores goals.
Chelsea & West Ham are both 1 point behind. Everton is 3 pts behind, but has 2 games in hand. They are in clear danger of not making the top 4.
