Shaqiri Believes He Can Achieve His Dream

Attacker Xherdan Shaqiri believes that he can achieve his dream of landing the Premier League title this season with Liverpool. The Reds are in a commanding position to win the League this season.

They are simply oozing class right now and it will be a major sporting upset if they do indeed fail to land the top-flight crown this season.

Manchester City who is widely viewed as Liverpool’s biggest rivals to the title simply is looking as though they are a shadow of the team that they were during the previous two seasons.

Speaking after his sides 5-2 win over Everton, he said: Obviously I am really happy. Especially against Everton, it is a big derby. I was very happy when I knew I was playing and I wanted to contribute to the win. I have been working hard to come back. I feel good and I feel fresh. Hopefully, I can help the team more.

“I think we trust each other a lot. It doesn’t matter how we play. We changed the formation a little bit this week so it was new. And it was not simple for some players to come into this game but we managed very well. We won today really well. There are a lot of games to come now so we need to stay on top.

“We are grounded. We know where we come. We take it game by game and that’s the most important thing. We don’t need to think about winning titles. My biggest dream is to win the title with this club and give it to the fans. So we will try everything. We have to focus on the pitch, stay grounded and work hard every day. If we win, it will be amazing but we still have a long way to go.”

Pep Guardiola’s decision to not bring in an experienced replacement for Vincent Kompany who left last summer looks to have been a mistake.

Shaqiri’s rise has been surprising 

Shaqiri joined the Anfield giants during the summer of 2018 after Stoke City were relegated from the Premier League. He joined amidst having a reputation for blowing hot and cold. On good days, he is pretty much capable of penetrating any defense in the Premier League though he does largely struggle for consistency.

While he has not managed to establish himself as a first-team regular for Jurgen Klopp’s side, Shaqiri has nevertheless become an important part of the Reds first-team. He is a useful impact substitute and also does a good job providing cover for the likes of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. The 28-year-old has so far scored several goals in all competitions for the Reds from 35 games.
