Liverpool’s quadruple quest will come down to fine margins

If there’s a club that knows a thing about success—especially recently—being defined by fine margins, it’s Liverpool. The trophy case at Anfield has been replenished in recent years, but it wouldn’t have taken much for the scale of that revitalization to be even grander.

There was John Stones’ goal-line clearance against the Reds in January 2019, which ultimately decided the Premier League title by a literal matter of millimeters. As recently as the last few weeks, two more goal-line escapades have helped determine its fortunes, with one Man City goalkeeper, Ederson, narrowly avoiding a goal-mouth catastrophe in a league draw vs. Liverpool, while another, US starter Zack Steven, wasn’t so fortunate in Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal defeat.
