      LFC League Season Analysis 2019-20

      Let's do this again! (Link to 18/19 season thread)



      What a tussle last season at the very top.  We are leaving the points targets the same for a couple of reasons.  Firstly although there were six teams displaying better than top four form over most of the season - come the end of the season there were four teams above the line. 

      Secondly, last season was an extraordinary battle between the top two but we have no indication based on one season if this is going to be a new long term trend. 

      Thirdly, keeping the targets the same allows us to compare the current campaign with the previous campaign.

      Opposition difficulty, as ever, is based on the end of season league position.  Norwich come in as difficulty 18, Sheffield United at 19 and Aston Villa at 20 - based on Championship finishing position.

      Title Target (87 points)

      Requirements:
      Win your 15 easiest games at home. Draw your hardest 4 (Last seasons top 4).
      Win your 11 easiest games away. Draw your next hardest 5 (For us, last seasons 5th to 9th) . Defeated at your hardest 3 (Top 3).

      P38 W26 D9 L3 Pts 87

      A current score of 0 or above suggests you are on course for the title race - below that suggests you are outside title form.

      Top Four Target (70 points)

      Requirements:
      Win your 12 easiest games at home. Draw your next hardest 5 . Defeated by hardest 2 teams
      Win your 8 easiest games away. Draw your next hardest 5. Defeated at the hardest 6.

      P38 W20 D10 L8 Pts 70

      A score of 0 or above suggests you are on course for a top 4 spot - below that suggests you are outside top 4 form.

      Weeks 1-3

      A win against Arsenal was a good result for the reds after 2 expected results.

      Early days, but Arsenal and City level pegging and Chelsea the worst start of the other 3 traditional top six sides.

      Race for the title


      Race for top four
