You need a little bit of luck on your side when challenging for the title and Liverpool have certainly had that this season.

Between Jordan Pickford’s error, that own goal against Tottenham and the penalty Mohamed Salah won here, Lady Luck has often smiled on the Reds.

Salah’s penalty was a dubious one at best and one that the introduction of VAR next season would surely be taking an in-depth look at.

Luckily for Liverpool, though, these decisions are going their way this season and helping them to keep on pushing Manchester City all the way.
