Klopp’s Liverpool is rar­ing to go

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HTSPORT -

LON­DON: Premier League strug­glers Wat­ford res­cued a dra­matic 1-1 draw against Le­ices­ter thanks to Craig Daw­son’s last-gasp over­head kick at the start of a week­end which could see Liverpool move within one win of the ti­tle. In the first full week­end of English top-flight matches since the Covid-19 shut­down in March, Wat­ford’s hopes of avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion looked set to be dented by Ben Chilwell’s su­perb 90th minute strike. But in a re­mark­able con­clu­sion, Hor­nets cen­tre-back Daw­son launched him­self into an acro­batic ef­fort moments later to claim his first goal for the club.

On Sun­day, Liverpool will play for the first time since the topflight hia­tus when the ti­tle chasers make the short trip to Merseyside rivals Everton. Jur­gen Klopp’s side need two wins from their re­main­ing nine games to end their 30-year wait to be crowned English champs.
