5 Important Liverpool Goals This Season

0 of 5

    From August to May, EPL clubs play 38 games amongst each other (19 teams playing each other twice, one home and one away), along with cup games and European competitions.

    Liverpool has played 34 league games so far, sitting in eighth place with 46 points. They have 12 wins, 10 draws and 12 losses. Fulham, actually, has similar win/draw/loss ratio but are placed ninth on goal differential, as Liverpool are at plus-three, Fulham at plus-one. 

    They have won the Carling Cup and have progressed into the FA Cup Final against Chelsea.

    I've thought about the season so far, and from what has been very disappointing, there have been some instances where the club has performed admirably. 

    Without further ado, here are five goals that I think were instrumental in Liverpool's season.
