They say history repeats itself, that ain’t the issue, the issue is in 2019/20 which history will be repeated?
The last two teams to play West Ham in the league on opening day, all won 4-0 and all ended the season 2nd… Man Utd and Liverpool. This season, Man City opens up with West Ham
The last time, Liverpool played Norwich on opening day, they won the league and European Cup- the team that ended 2nd was Man City
You have to go back to 1990, the last time Liverpool opened the season with a game against Man City, that same season Algeria won Afcon and Liverpool won the league a last time
Whenever a team is aiming to win a trophy a 3rd successive time in the last 3 years, the runners up have been Liverpool- Sevilla win Europa a third consecutive time, Liverpool is the runners up, 2018- Real Madrid win Champions league a third successive time, Liverpool is a runners up. Can City also make it a third time with Liverpool ending as runners up again?
The last time a team won 3 consecutive champions leagues, the next was won by Liverpool… 1974-1976- Bayern won it 3 times in a row, Liverpool won the next.. 2016-2018, Real Madrid won it 3 times in a row, Liverpool won the next, what many have forgotten is actually Liverpool won 2 in a row after Bayern won it 3 in a row. Can the same trick be repeated in 2020?
There is only one Champions league final played on 30 May in history- 30 May 1984, Liverpool won it on penalties over an Italian team, there is only one final played in Istanbul, Liverpool won it on penalties over an Italian team
The next final? 30 May, Istanbul
The last time, Chelsea played Man United on the opening day of a league season, they won the league, and Liverpool won the Champions league in Istanbul
The last two times Liverpool have ended 2nd in the league to Manchester club, the next one was won by Chelsea- 2010 and 2014. Can the same be repeated in 2020 with Lampard shocking the apple cart?
HISTORY will surely be repeated if Liverpool wins the league or Man City wins or Chelsea wins it. The question is which one is it gonna be?
