Liverpool head into the back end of January following a (finally) consistent run of form that has seen the reds claim maximum points from seven of the last 10 fixtures.
Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool fans alike have cause to boast justified optimism when it comes to the rest of the season—Liverpool will go equal on points with Arsenal should they beat Norwich this weekend, providing Arsenal falter away from home against Chelsea, and the chance to leapfrog Arsenal will arise when Liverpool travel to London later this month.
That being said, Liverpool fans are painfully aware of the chances that the Reds will slow down their run of form. Unfortunately, Liverpool have made a habit of taking their fans on a roller coaster ride, and while Liverpool seem to be a club on the ascendancy, the nature of the Premier League dictates that the next dip (sometimes severe dip) could always be just around the corner.
So what should fans expect from the remainder of the season?
This article will present both the optimistic and pessimistic predictions for the rest of Liverpool's season.
