Our date is with Liverpool, the Premier League champions, who can save their poor season in the next two months.

Situation: Liverpool ranks seventh with 46 points in the table after 29 rounds.
Catching up to leaders Manchester City has become very difficult, as the Celestial team has 71 points, 25 points behind the title holders.
Target: Liverpool will struggle with the teams that occupy the second to sixth place in the English Premier League in order to occupy a qualifying position for the Champions League or European League next season.
The teams currently above Liverpool in the table are Manchester United, Leicester City, Chelsea, West Ham United and Tottenham, while Everton is equal in the number of points, and is 4 points away from Arsenal, and Aston Villa 5 points.

Liverpool have 11 matches after returning from the international suspension, and it may become 13 if they reach the semi-finals of the champions, or 14 if they complete the journey to the final.
Fiery confrontations await Liverpool with the return, as they begin to confront Arsenal in the league on Saturday, the fourth of April, and both are looking to qualify for the European Championships next season, and then meet Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday.
He will then return to England to face Aston Villa the following Saturday, a match with European aspirations for next season, and then host Real Madrid on Wednesday.
After the end of the Champions League quarter-final mission, Mohamed Salah’s colleagues will play against Leeds United and Newcastle United before a fiery confrontation is expected against Manchester United, which is: A direct confrontation with a competitor for the Champions League seats.
The confrontation with United will mediate the two Champions League semi-final matches if Liverpool qualifies at Real Madrid’s expense.

Liverpool’s fate and goals from these four matches will depend on the results of other rivals in the next matches.
The future of the art director
Jurgen Klopp, who won 4 titles for Liverpool in recent seasons, is not in danger of being dismissed now, but his results after the international break and until the end of the season may change things.
Klopp’s contract with the Reds extends until 2024 and he has previously confirmed that he is continuing with the club and ruled out the possibility of training the German national team.
Liverpool misses many of its players due to injury, and this is the main reason for the poor results this season.
Virgil Van Dyck, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip will be absent for a long time, as well as captain Jordan Henderson expected to return after the international break.
Klopp played two midfielders in the center of defense, and when one player came back and hit the other, you did not find a complete defensive double most of the time.
It is not expected that one of the defenders will return this season, so that the reliance will remain on the weight of Capac coming from Schalke and young Nat Phillips, or Fabinhos return to the back if one of them is injured.
Liverpool will still be fighting for the Champions League or Europa League cards until the end, but the results of their rivals will determine their position at the end of the season.
Last week, Liverpool won two consecutive matches for the first time since the end of last January, when they beat Leipzig in the Champions League and Wolverhampton in the English Premier League.
Also, Liverpool’s chance to cross Real Madrid is not weak, and in the event that the royal crosses, he will find on his way the winner from facing Chelsea and Porto in the semi-finals.
