Liverpool’s pre-season has officially concluded this weekend following the Reds’ 7-2 win over Blackpool. Jurgen Klopp’s men actually fell 2-0 behind in this game, but turned on the style after the interval and ran out 7-2 winners over the Seasiders.
LFC pre-season results (2020/21)
LFC 3-0 Stuttgart
Salzburg 2-2 Liverpool
LFC 7-2 Blackpool
Also Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool (Community Shield, with Arsenal winning on penalties)
A curtailed pre-season, consisting of only three games, and many would agree that the 19/20 pre-season was far more taxing, including hit outs against the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla Napoli and Lyon.
Yes, Covid didn’t quite help matters in 20/21, but was the tough pre-season one of the reasons for the Reds’ fabulous start to the 19/20 campaign?
