Liverpool continue to be one of the strong competitors in the race for top four. However, with the unpredictability of the Premier League, it is never too good to get too comfortable.
The reds have won all their matches since the beginning of 2018, putting pressure on Chelsea to win and stay ahead, and on Arsenal and Tottenham to win and catch up. They even managed to defeat the leaders, Manchester City, who until then had gone unbeaten all season!
However, when it came to playing against the lowest team on the table, Swansea, they just could not manage it. The Reds lost to Swansea 1-0 after conceding a goal from Mawson in the 40th minute.
This was a vital win for Swansea which keeps their hopes of escaping relegation alive. However, for Liverpool, it meant the inability for them to go level with 3rd place Chelsea.
The good thing is that they are still in top four, currently hugging the final fourth spot. However, the competition is fierce and every game matters as much as the last.
