If the Season Started when Kenny Took Charge

The below table shows the league table for the 16 Premier League gameweeks since Kenny Dalglish took charge of Liverpool.

Liverpool are currently averaging 2.06 points per game. Extrapolated over 36 games, we would be sitting on 74 points, 2 behind United's current league total.

If you give Kenny a couple of 'settling in' games and just look at the last 14 gameweeks, Liverpool are top of the form league on goal difference, with Chelsea second and United 4 points behind in third:

This all bodes very well for next season, especially if you take into account the promise of big money signings over the summer and the benefit Liverpool will feel from a full pre-season under Dalglish and Clarke.

In looking at our prospects for the remainder of this season, based on Tottenham's slide (they are 13th in the form table based on the last 10 matches!) and Man City's recent dip in form, 5th place is a realistic possibility and 4th place, whilst unlikely, is by no means impossible.

The last two games of the season will bring excitement we could not have imagined in January and the 5 years some pundits speculated it would take us to return to the heights of 2009 is looking more like 5 months with every passing game.
