Could Not Signing a Defender Cost Liverpool a Top Four Spot?

The Premier League title race has taken a huge twist since the start of 2021. Gone are the days when this looked like being a three horse race between the Northern giants Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

It is now there for Manchester City to lose, and specifically in terms of Liverpool, winners of the title last season, they are now in a fight to finish in the top four. It has been a season packed with injuries and frustration for Liverpool fans so far, but could it be about to get worse?

Their defensive situation seemingly does by the week, and could not signing a defender cost Liverpool a top four spot, just a year after they emphatically lifted the Premier League trophy?

Unlucky with Injuries or Bad Planning?
There will have been many people out there who strongly fancied Liverpool to lift the title again this season, and some may have even been placing bets on them to do so with new football betting sites. However, those bets were dealt an early blow, with Liverpool losing their main two defenders, Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez early in the season.

Since then, things have not been any easier for Liverpool, but it is important to note here that despite not being at their best, when the January transfer window opened, Liverpool’s title hopes were alive.

At this point the club had a choice, to stick with what they had, or to bring in a defender. In the modern age of football, with so much pressure to play games and kick off times moved for TV, depth is crucial and an integral part of success. Liverpool have never been known for having it and didn’t press the button on January to get it.

Since then, they have dropped out of the title race and the latest Premier League standings show they are in a battle to finish inside the top four. Yes, Liverpool have been unlucky this season, but their bad planning has caused them to drop into this kind of situation.

When you are a big club, fighting for domestic and European titles, you have to react and spend money. The money that Liverpool will lose next season if they do not get into the top four is far greater than what a new defender would have cost them.

Manchester City are the likely title winners now and have been a dominant force in the Premier League for many years. They don’t have problems with depth and injuries, because they are set up to deal with it. Their squad is far bigger than the one Liverpool have at their disposal, and if you want to compete and beat teams like that, you need to have the same weapons in your armour.

The Reds will continue to aim for the top four, and there is every chance that they can climb up and get a spot. If they don’t though, you have to question why they did not sign a defender in January to give the team a much needed boost.

They weren't high profile names, but Liverpool did acquire two centerbacks in the winter window...
