‘A new, and different’ Liverpool FC look for more than a top-four finish
The Reds’ current form is the result of a run of four straight league victories.
They are one of just three teams in the top six in the table and have won three of their last four matches at Anfield, including their opening away game against Tottenham.
However, the Reds are struggling to find the form that they showed against Tottenham, which saw them win their opening match in six games.
It is not as if Liverpool are a team without any goals, as Daniel Sturridge has netted in all three of his league appearances this season.
They have just one in six league matches but have won all four of their league matches in the Champions League.
Liverpool have won just one of their past nine league games away from Anfield, and are just four points above the relegation zone with two games remaining.
The Reds have scored just three goals in their past six away league matches and only three in their last five games at Anfield.
Liverpool’s goalscoring record against Tottenham has dropped to a staggering eight goals in 20 league games, a record that has been maintained by Liverpool this season and is the lowest in the Premier League.
The Reds are also looking to rebound from a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle last week, as their defeat at Southampton left them without a point from their past five games.
The visitors have scored twice in their two away league defeats and have conceded three times in all competitions.
They remain in the bottom four with only two games to go.
The visit of Sunderland is Liverpool’s last home game of the season, with the Premier Bank Stadium scheduled to be packed with Liverpool fans for the first leg.
