Liverpool Getting out of the Championship Race with Draw against Wigan Athletic

Liverpool is gradually getting out of the championship race now. They have lost point once again in premiership being held to a 1-1 draw by Wigan Athletic. With this draw, Liverpool is now 12 points behind leader Arsenal with a match at hand. A lot have been written on their inconsistent performance in the last few seasons. Now, it seems that Liverpool is losing their pace.

In the stalemate against Wigan Athletic, the all reds took the lead in the 49th minute with Fernando Torres scoring. However, Wigan Athletic leveled the score with the 80th minute equalizer of Titus Bramble. In the post match reaction, Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez said that they did not have the luck in the match as Wigan capitalize from their only chance of the match.

Herald Sun reported:

"We need to do everything nearly perfect now," Benitez said when asked if his side's title challenge was over.
"When you lose points like today it's very difficult.
"They had just one chance and drew. In games like this you sometimes just need some luck."

Well, the main thing is that Liverpool is losing points matches after matches and thus getting out of the title race for another frustrating year. Now, let us see if Rafa Benitez’s boys can make a strong come back in premiership this season.
