Liverpool 11 games from incredible quadruple including clashes with Man Utd and Everton after sealing FA Cup final spot

LIVERPOOL are 11 games from pulling off a miraculous quadruple after their pulsating FA Cup semi-final win.

Jurgen Klopp’s men beat rivals Man City 3-2 at Wembley on Saturday to book their spot in next month’s final.

The Reds will face either Crystal Palace or Chelsea – who they beat in the Carabao Cup final in February.

And Klopp’s side have seven Premier League games and a potential three Champions League contests to pull off a historic quad.

Liverpool are one point behind Man City in the Premier League title race with seven games to play.

They include home fixtures against their two biggest rivals this week – Manchester United on Tuesday night and Everton on Sunday.

The Reds also face a trip to Aston Villa, who are managed by their legendary former captain Steven Gerrard.

And there’s the small matter of a Champions League semi-final against Villarreal also on the horizon at the end of the month.

If Liverpool beat Unai Emery’s side then they’ll face either Real Madrid or Man City in the final in Paris on May 28.

No team has pulled off the quadruple before with Manchester United winning the treble in 1999 and Man City the domestic treble in 2019.

Man City still have the Premier League title in their hands after the 2-2 Premier League draw last weekend.

But the Reds are just one point behind and ready to pounce in their quadruple request if Pep Guardiola’s men drop points.

Klopp told BBC after the Wembley win: “The quadruple talk I can’t believe it. This win means we have another game and then we have to play Aston Villa in a midweek, they have to move one game again.

“I don’t think we have a full free week before the last matchday – it’s all difficult but who cares?

“We came here and we wanted to go through to the final.

“We knew about the problems but qualifying for this final makes the quadruple even more difficult – it’s the only way to do it but it makes it more difficult as well so it’s a strange situation.

“But we are over the moon, we beat the strongest football team in the world and that’s a pretty special moment.”
