The Reds are aiming to become the first team in England to win the quadruple – lifting the First League, Champions League, FA Cup and EFL Cup in the same season. Jurgen Klopp’s page has the latter trophy already wonbeating Chelsea in the February final.
Liverpool’s campaign could collapse this month. They meet Benfica Lisbon in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on April 5th and 13th and travel to the title rivals Manchester City on the 10th of April. They will play City again six days later the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.
Liverpool’s position in the Premier League is fascinating. A place in the top four is practically a given – considering they’re 18 points clear Tottenham in fifth place – and have little more to do if they fall behind City in the title race. City is currently one point ahead.
The Reds’ other Premier League games this month are against newcastle (A), everton (H), Manchester United (Hand Watford (H) – starting with the latter in Saturday’s early kick-off. City is playing on the same day and will travel after fights Burnley.
Thaigo is no stranger to difficult months. He was part of Barcelona Team that won the treble in 2010/11 and repeated the feat nine years later at Bayern Munich. Still, he believes this April will be exceptional and compares it to an international tournament.

“The other day I was talking about it with some friends and I’ve never had such an exciting month in the years that I’ve been involved in football as this one with such important and exciting games every three days,” said Thiago Liverpool website.
“So it’s going to be great. Well, it’s not the most exciting month of my career [but] It’s certainly exciting because you’re up against the best, even in the best competitions, but also because it reminds you that we’re in the final.
“It looks like a World Cup, a European Championship, where every game is a final. That puts us in a one-mission mood and we’re in.”
Thiago has not been called up for Spain’s recent caps against Albania and Iceland, allowing him to enjoy a break ahead of Liverpool’s tough April.
“You can never be separated from football because in the end it’s your life, part of your life, but you can also rest because the Premier League is very intense,” added Thiago. “The Champions League is very intense in terms of people’s emotions at night so it was good to have this week off to recharge our batteries and be ready for these amazing two months ahead of us.”
On the confidence gained from winning the EFL Cup, Thiago said: “We had a lot at stake to win the final, we won it and the lads were incredibly happy and also confident with the performance, with the tournament as a whole we have done. But it’s also important to arrive at that moment of the season and be ready for the final that we have.”
