But as they say, when it rains, it pours!

 Liverpool were beaten comprehensively by Leeds United who to their credit played a brilliant game of football. It was a proper pressing game where both teams were always active and the game flowed very nicely. However, in the 89th minute, when C Summerville played a low shot and beat a diving Alison, Liverpool fans realised that this might be a very tough and long season for them if it hasn’t already been one. 

After this loss, Liverpool slipped up to 9th position. They have played 12 games in the seasons where they have lost 4, drawn 4 and won 4. Where do you think Liverpool will finish this season?
